BAHID Summer Residential Conference - 5th - 7th July 2019
Recovery to Repatriation: using cases from the past to develop future techniques
Fire Service College, Moreton-in-Marsh
Registration is now closed
Management of cold cases does not rely only on valuable lessons and experiences learned historically. Innovative forensic techniques are continually applied and investigated in a bid to find new leads or establish links between cases previously thought to be unconnected. While the application of new techniques has led to successes and new leads for investigators, it has also led to discussions of the ethical implications of some of those techniques. This 3-day conference will host practical workshops and presentations aimed at highlighting cold cases, and will also present new ground-breaking developments in forensic sciences in a continued bid to resolve open and future cases. The workshops will be held on Friday afternoon, covering topics such as fire investigation, assessing burnt human remains for DNA viability and a crime scene scenario. Saturday and Sunday will see experts from a wide range of disciplines invited to present on topics covering aspects of forensic sciences, cold/historical case experiences, innovative techniques and new insights which can help current and future investigators.
