CSI Isle of Man webpages launched 28 February 2008

A TWELVE page section of the Isle of Man Constabulary’s official website was launched today (28 February 2008), detailing the work of the Crime Scene Investigation department.

fingerprintingDetective Sergeant Grahame Bell compiled the material to give outsiders an insight into the forensic work and techniques used by Island officers in a range of investigations.

He explained:

‘The Isle of Man CSI department has, for a number of years, welcomed work experience and undergraduate students to visit in order to learn how a CSI department functions. Unfortunately it is no longer possible to offer this service, due to health and safety and operational restrictions, but the interest in this subject remains high and I frequently receive requests for attachments or information.
‘As a result, I have written these webpages to provide a location where students and the public on the Isle of Man can go to get a flavour of what we do, and information on the science underlying the different disciplines.’

The webpages include information about DNA, fingerprint and footprint retrieval techniques, photography and other equipment used by Scenes of Crime Officers plus course links and suggested further reading.

Home Affairs Minister Martyn Quayle MHK said:

‘I welcome this expansion of the Department’s online information. It is a comprehensive section giving details about a very interesting aspect of police work and I am certain it will attract more visitors to the Department’s website and prove a useful resource to students.’
