DID YOU KNOW?

The Police Crime Commission (PCC), Lancashire Constabulary and UCLan’s School of Forensic and Applied Sciences have joined forces to create the Lancashire Forensic Science Academy.

In the first collaboration of its kind, CSIs, forensic science experts, academics and students benefit from shared expertise whilst working alongside each other in purpose-built facilities to research, investigate and deliver forensic science services in Lancashire.

The collaboration is part of Lancashire Constabulary’s commitment to innovation and is supported by a multi-million pound investment from UCLan to improve and enhance its forensic science department as part of the new venture.

Innovation allows us to focus on continuous improvement across all areas of the organisation and where we feel it is right, attract our strongest partners to work closer with us to protect people and deliver value for money services.

The University has worked with us for many years in our research and evaluation. This new relationship brings us closer together during a time when policing and academia are driving up professional standards.
