Forensic Mark Comparison

This course introduces students to a range of techniques used in the analysis of marks that originate in scenes of crime. Students explore, in depth, current methodologies in forensic mark comparison, by considering practical approaches, limitations and issues involved in the current methodologies. Students develop a scientific approach to investigating forensic mark comparison. They gain practical experience with practitioner experts at their place of work. The collaborators include the West Midlands Police, a major UK Police Force, and Orchid Cellmark, an established Forensic Science provider. Students can undertake their research project either at the University or within a variety of specialist practitioner centres within the EU.
