CJI publishes new report on FSNI


CJI publishes new report on FSNI

13/02/2014
CJI's Deputy Chief Inspector James Corrigan has called for the criminal justice system to develop a more joined-up approach to forensic services to meet current and future forensic requirements. View report page.

This inspection found the quality of the scientific analysis and reporting provided by FSNI was good and that criminal justice system customers were satisfied with the standard of advice and reports being provided, however delays are undermining this positive work.  The Deputy Chief Inspector has therefore called on the police and FSNI should work together to better manage the demand for forensic science expertise and improve productivity within the laboratory.
 
To assist in dealing with this issue Inspectors have also recommended the development of a strategy to support the provision of a seamless service which addresses the funding and delivery of forensic services from crime scene to court.
