For DFUs (digital forensic units)
The Dstl Digital Crime Scene Group are hosting a workshop in February 2023 at the BattleLab facility in Dorset. A fantastic space to trial, test and develop skills and knowledge specific to drones.
This event will bring together industry, academia and government organisations with the aim of identifying existing (e.g. NIR inks or phosphor tags), emerging, or new capabilities in the area of tracking suspects using benign chemical and/or biological markers. The event is sponsored by The National Security Technology and Innovation Exchange (NSTIx) and will be hosted jointly by the Universities of Kent and Northumbria at the University of Kent's Canterbury campus (and also online) on 19th January 2023.
Join us to review the success and impact of drug driving legislation, with an additional and unique insight into how split-second judgement and reaction times for Traffic & Firearms Officers could be improved using novel technology from the world of high-performance sport.
Forensic science regulation – the role of policing in meeting forensic science regulator requirements
In this session, Forensic Science Regulator Gary Pugh, NPCC Forensic Lead Chief Constable Nick Dean, and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) Accreditation Director Lorraine Turner will consider:
– the Forensic Science Regulator Act 2021 and the legal requirements
The major challenges confronting society do not have simple resolutions. They are multi-faceted and long term, requiring cross-cutting analysis with the ability to work across traditional divides and develop innovative approaches. This conference will look at how these problems, such as climate and biodiversity, can be addressed, as well as examining the skills and structures needed to deliver.
This workshop is aimed at participants who already have some familiarity with the likelihood-ratio framework for evaluation of evidence
This workshop explains the logic of the likelihood-ratio framework in a way which is accessible to a broad audience and which does not require any prior knowledge of the framework.
