The center contains boxes upon boxes of decomposing, chemically unstable negatives, many of which are from the Special Investigations Division, America's oldest crime lab.

SOCOs were first introduced into the Metropolitan Police in 1968, replacing the CID officers who had previously carried out these functions. Some other forces had introduced them before that time, however. [1]

Other police forces around the United Kingdom continued this trend of replacing the CID officers with civilians. This allowed the creation of dedicated departments within the police forces. Police officers often moved post after only a few years; the introduction of civilian Scenes of Crime Officers allowed departments to build a resource based on experience.

In 2001, the Council for the Registration of Forensic Practitioners was created. This was in response to the lack of regulation within the world of forensic science. Whilst registration is not compulsory, SOCOs are encouraged to apply for registration. The registration process involves the applicant submitting case studies on crime scenes they have examined. These are then subjected to their peers, who assess the applicants work based on best practise. The introduction of the CRFP is aiming to raise the standard of practise and credibility within the forensic departments who work alongside law enforcement agencies.

A strategic alliance has been formed between Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police in order to enable both forces to meet the challenge of reducing policing budgets. By working more closely together the forces will benefit from greater operational and organisational resilience, making us the fourth largest geographic police area in England and Wales.  

The main purpose of the role is to examine crime scenes as directed, prioritising where necessary, in order to maximise the recording, development, recovery and evaluation of all types of forensic evidence to support the investigation of crime.  

Collect, collate and evaluate forensic evidence and intelligence that may aid the investigation. Undertake a comprehensive forensic, fingerprint and photographic examination of crime scenes, including victims / suspects and the deceased. Package, label and systematically record all evidence at crime scenes.

The Waukegan Police Department is one of only three law enforcement agencies that have a three-dimensional forensic scanner that can virtually re-create crime scenes or crashes, authorities said.

The Faro Focus 3-D scanner attaches to a tripod and rotates 360 degrees, painting the room with infrared light, said David Dustin of the Georgia-based Dustin Forensics, who trained Waukegan police personnel how to use it.

The accompanying software will then connect a series of video-type scans to create a virtually realistic model of a scene within 2 millimeters accuracy, he said.
