    Abstract

    Forensic Science is a topic which captures the imagination of the public, they engage out of interest and exposure to both popular culture and the ever present media coverage of the use of science within the criminal justice system. Currently the provision of forensic science in the UK is undergoing an enormous period of change. The closure of one of the longest running forensic providers in England and Wales (the Forensic Science Service), and the potential loss of both the collective knowledge of practitioners could have a devastating effect on the heritage of this profession.
