Crime Scene Training Facility

Crime Scene Training Facility

The development of practical skills is a key theme of our Forensic Science courses and our facilities support our 'crime scene to court' approach to forensic analysis.

Our dedicated crime scene facility is used to replicate a broad range of scenarios from burglaries and assaults to detailed drug searches. Students assume the role of crime scene examiners and are trained by our expert team to develop investigation, collection and analysis techniques.

Students learn how to process the collected evidence in our state-of-the-art laboratory environment. Our specialist forensic equipment and facilities include:

We are also developing an exciting range of online, virtual crime scene training packages to further enhance these facilities and support student learning.

Both Nottinghamshire Police and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have used our facilities to develop their own forensic training programmes.
