The announcement of the Closure of the Forensic Science Service (FSS) has shocked not only the employees of the FSS but the worldwide forensic community. It has not been made clear to the general public the impact that this decision made by the government will affect society.
The cost of forensic submissions sent to the private sector will rocket, and if the police forces decide to take on their own forensic work due to their budget cuts then impartiality could be lost.
The FSS has a worldwide reputation for research and development (DNA profiling), impartiality and highly skilled scientists.
Help keep the British CSI by helping to save The Forensic Science Service!
We need 100,000 signatures to get it debated in the Houses of Parliament. We've been informed that it needs to be 100,000. Thank You to those who have informed us.
