Quality forensic training can help to maximise the forensic outcomes of your cases and minimise unfortunate mistakes made all too often.
What crosses your mind when you hear about law enforcement agencies and forensic scientists who have tragically mishandled physical evidence from important crime scenes? These cases receive criticism from people around the world, but most people do not fully comprehend the complexity of forensic science.
Since you work with forensics on a routine basis, you recognise the need for investigators and other law enforcement officers to get everything right at the crime scene. One small mistake could create confusion in the courtroom, weaken the case or even lead to a dismissal of charges or a lost case. In some cases, it means that a criminal is free to walk the streets and commit further crimes due to mistakes made weeks, months or years prior to the case going to court.
Our commitment to you
The forensic scientists of The Forensic Experts Group hope to ensure that such mistakes do not occur in Singapore and beyond. We are committed to help you understand the science of physical evidence. This includes but is not limited to: recognition and preservation of evidence at the scene, the integrity of evidence at the scene and in the lab, sampling procedures, laboratory instrumentation, examination methods and analytical tests used for identification and comparison, their value and limitations, interpretation and quality assurance measures.
We rely on our 80 years of combined experience in forensic science and lab management, extensive research and forensic knowledge to train law enforcement agencies, security firms, organisations, educational institutions, government agencies and other groups in various elements of forensic science. As insiders in the forensic profession, we can provide forensic training and helpful insights that will make a difference to your cases.
Why Invest in Expert Forensic Training?
Your primary goal when providing training to your colleagues or employees is to increase the competency of your staff and maximise the outcome of your case. Courts are increasingly relying on forensic evidence, far more than eyewitness accounts. To effectively use forensic science, a thorough understanding of how it works is fundamental and essential. Unfortunately, forensic science is one of the most difficult sciences to fully understand because there are so many facets of knowledge involved.
Unlike the pure sciences where experiments are conducted in controlled environments and a single effect can be explained by a scientific law, no single scientific law is readily available to explain the unique and complex phenomena that are related to each crime scene because every scene is anything but a controlled setting.
Are the personnel of your organisation who are present at the frontlines of an incident (e.g., law enforcement officers, security officers, investigators, social workers and other frontline officers) aware of forensics and do they understand its value and limitations? Equipping them with the required knowledge will minimise the chances of a crime scene being mishandled or relevant evidence not being recovered or accidentally lost.
Ready-to-Go Forensic Training
Our forensics experts provide a variety of forensic training programmes in the form of workshops and seminars, ranging from basic to advance level, to cater to both the new and experienced personnel in your organisation. The programmes can be general topics to create forensic awareness for personnel involved in investigations or specific topics for forensic personnel who require the knowledge and skillset to more effectively process the physical evidence. We have conducted training for both local and overseas organisations, including commercial and industrial organisations and law enforcement agencies. You can engage us for a single training class or on an on-going basis over a period of time.
Some of the training topics related to general forensic science, quality assurance, lab management and specific forensic disciplines are listed in the tables below.
