Cellmark offers a 24-hour/365-day-a-year on-call team for attendance at a variety of crime scenes.
Cellmark offers a comprehensive scene examination service with highly experienced scientists who cover a wide range of evidence types including BPA, enhancement of blood and other marks, semen, fires, footwear marks, tracking, ecology, archaeology.
Through a single contact phone number Cellmark offers a 24-hour/365-day-a-year on-call team for attendance at a variety of crime scenes. We also have specialist expertise in the recovery of samples for DNA analysis in crime scene and mass disaster situations.
Scene scientists can provide interpretation and advice that extends from the initial crime scene to the final court room.
At a scene of crime, the scientist can offer initial intelligence, for example:
• Where the attack took place from blood patterns present, damage
identified or the movement of an offender from footwear marks
• The initial findings may support or contradict statements given by suspect, victim or witnesses for early interview leads
• They could identify and advise on fast-track actions, for example, a blood stain that could be analysed in order to compare with suspects or the National DNA Database for early intelligence
Cellmark scientists can utilise their extensive experience to advise on the case examination strategy and at CPS case conferences. A scene scientist can target key exhibits to be sent for examination, something that can be invaluable to the enquiry.
