Collecting biological evidence from a crime scene (CEPOL 37/2015)

Date: 24 June 2015
Organizer: Greece in cooperation with CEPOL

Description: This webinar aims to raise awareness on the tools and methods used for collecting biological evidence from a crime scene. This will be achieved through the presentation of issues concerning the relevant methods and rules applicable for the investigation of a crime scene. Participants will be able to compose an overview of tools and appliances used to detect biological material such as blood and sperm on a crime scene, to examine methods to collect samples destined for DNA analysis – such as swabbing and taping – and to develop reasoning and approach behind the selection of samples as well as to identify the most efficient sampling approach to help solving a case.
