Forensic Identification Services
What we do
When a crime is committed or disaster occurs, forensic identification members are called in to secure, record and document the scene as well as collect and package exhibits for analysis. This may include crime scene photography and sketches, fingerprint, footwear and tire-track examinations, looking for trace evidence, bloodstain pattern analysis, and collecting samples for DNA. The evidence collected is used to identify perpetrators or victims, and is interpreted and presented in court.
There are more than 70 identification units across the country that provide Forensic Identification services to RCMP detachments, Canadian police services, and assists National and International organizations in disaster victim identification.
