Forensic Science

A fascinating insight into the world of forensic science

CSI Miami, CSI New York, Cracker… just some of the hugely popular crime drama series on television that have made people develop a keen interest in that most fascinating of subjects: forensic science.

The word ‘forensic’ comes from the Latin word forensis which simply means ‘public’ or ‘from the forum’.

Forensic science is concerned with using scientific methods either in public, in a court, or in the justice system as a whole. In fact, any science used for the purposes of the law is forensic science. The prime function of Forensic Scientists is to provide evidence to support criminal investigations.
