FoSci SIG Reports
The Forensic Science Special Interest Group (FoSci SIG) is a community of everyone involved in forensic science. The FoSci SIG is funded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and will run a programme of activities to build a forensic science community and enable closer networking and better communication between forensic science end users, suppliers of products and services, academics and other researchers, and policy makers, for improved R&D.
In 2011, the Home Office Chief Scientific Adviser, Professor Bernard Silverman, was commissioned by Home Office ministers to conduct a review of research and development in forensic science: Research and Development in Forensic Science: a Review
The FoSci SIG was created as a direct result of the Silverman Review's recommendation to the TSB to help facilitate better communication and collaboration in forensic science R&D. The creation of a community of stakeholder groups and individuals, and the facilitation of ongoing communication, is necessary given the interdisciplinary nature of forensic science and the breadth of stakeholders.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) has published Live-time Forensics: Harnessing Science and Innovation for Forensic Investigation in Policing.
This document is the first of its kind, as not only does it provide an insight into the issues of three key areas of policing, but offers up some direction to those working within academia and industry to where future forensic research and development would improve public safety.
