Forensic Science Society Joint Conference: Fact and Fiction ()


The forensic market place continues to grow and diversify in England and Wales providing further potential for police forces to obtain increased benefits in terms of cost or service provision. However, achieving this requires the knowledge and ability to evaluate a complex range of criteria from timeliness of service delivery to scientific quality and standards.

This paper identifies some relevant decision making criteria and proposes a framework for evaluation.
