The review is the third and final review to be carried out by the Inspectorates to assess progress against the recommendations made in their original 2005 inspection report.  Speaking following the publication of the review, Brendan McGuigan, Deputy Chief Inspector of Criminal Justice said: “Out of the original 25 recommendations made, just four are outstanding and we are confident these will be completed in line with the final Action Plan developed by the PSNI.  Scientific Support plays an important role in the identification and detection of crime and Inspectors are pleased that much has been done to address the concerns raised in the original inspection report during the last four years.  We are confident that any outstanding issues will be seen as a priority and will receive the attention of the PSNI until this work is completed.”
