A wide-ranging and authentic introductory text book on forensic science designed for school and college forensic science programmes for students between the ages of 14 and 18. Based around a crime scene scenario and presented mainly in tabular and list formats for easy accessibility, it has direct relevance to Forensic Evidence, Collection and Analysis and Forensic Investigation Procedures in Practice topics in UK BTEC programmes and will be relevant to other formal and informal courses of study also. It will also be of interest to general readers with an interest in forensics. Professional crime scene procedure is considered in detail including equipment, risk assessment, protocols, recovery techniques, contamination avoidance, record keeping and packaging. A wide range of laboratory-based evidence analysis is covered including fingerprints, blood patterns, DNA, footwear marks, digital media, fibres, hairs, drugs, toxicology, documents, firearms, entomology and the use of instrumentation. Examples of case-notes are provided. The professional responsibilities of forensic scientists are described along with principles of evidence interpretation and the use of databases. An example of a forensic written statement is included. Author Simon Shawcross has more than 30 years experience as a professional forensic scientist and forensic science teacher.

The book is paired with the separate Crime Scene Examination Workbook for Students which sets out areas of study and allows students to complete tables, exercises and lists of information based on their own research as a basis for assignments.
