Members of our Forensic Identification Unit are responsible for recording, collecting, locating and examining evidence at crime scenes. They use their specialized skills to assist investigators in a variety of situations such as break and enters, motor vehicle collisions, homicides, assaults and anything in between.
The collection of evidence can be as simple as taking a series of photos, or as complex as using a digital 3D scanner to record a scene, or swabbing blood, using powders or chemicals to develop fingerprints, picking up broken car parts at a motor vehicle collision or charred debris at the scene of a fire.
Currently our Forensic Unit has a Sergeant, Constable and a civilian Forensic Identification Technician. All completed an intense nine week training course and are accredited through either the Ontario Police College or the Canadian Police College.
