Our Expert Services:
Digital imagery is a powerful evidence type that can often be key in court proceedings, providing visual evidence in a way that no other evidence can. This service includes expert opinion, enhancement, event analysis, highlighting and subtitling, comparison, authentication and verification and compiling of court compilations.
The computer is used day to day in both domestic and professional situations potentially making it the most evidence rich item in a case. This type of analysis is usually associated with cases involving child pornography or hacking, however it can be highly valuable in cases that have no obvious relevance to technology, such as murder,corporate investigations, kidnap, rape and robbery.
The use of mobile phones has become universal and with smartphones capturing more and more information about our day to day activity, the phone is a useful exhibit in any case. The geographical location of a phone at a particular point in time can also be invaluable in a case. We can analyse data records to establish the proximity to one or more mobile network mast.
Due to the proliferation of devices with recording capability, audio evidence is commonplace. The quality of recording is often poor, requiring analysis and enhancement for it to become useful evidence. This service includes enhancement, voice analysis and comparison, editing of interview recordings, disguising of voices, speed correction, transfer of formats, repair of damaged mediums and transcriptions of audio recordings.
From identification of weapons and ammunition to shooting scene reconstructions, firearms evidence can be vital to a court result. Our service includes weapon and ammunition clarification and comparison, condition assessment including potential for accidental discharge and trajectory and range determination.
Viewing a scene in three dimensions can greatly assist the detailed analysis of events, enabling evidence to be considered from any perspective; and pinpointed and measured with extreme precision. This equips you with a virtual 'return to scene' capability which can be highly powerful in any investigation.
Forensic photography is a key process in any investigation, from scene documentation to the imaging of evidence it provides an accurate account of events. It provides a means of displaying the nature of a crime scene to anyone involved in the investigation who are not able to attend and allows items of evidence that can not be exhibited in court, to be clearly presented.
Forensic accountants are vital to investigating fraud and invaluable in various other types of complex investigations s such as terrorism. The service looks beyond the numbers and deals with the business realities of situation and presents back complex financial data clearly and precisely.
3D body and injury mapping provides a greater level understanding of mechanisms of injuries and causes of death than 2D photos can ever achieve. Multiple layers can be demonstrated; skin, muscles, circulatory systems and skeleton; ensuring complex pathology data is presented in an easy to understand way, whilst avoiding prejudice cased through viewing distressing autopsy photographs.
Due to their very destructive nature fires and explosions can be extremely complex to investigate and accurately interpret, in addition it can be a challenge to present the findings to jury in an easy to understand way. We can carry out examinations of scenes and source material, reviews forensic work already undertaken, provided expert witness testament in court and utilise state of the art evidence presentation to support your case through court.
Fingerprints have now been used for over a century by Police and Government agencies as an effective method for identifying individuals involved in criminal activity. Where cases presented to a court fail, it is invariably due to issues of continuity and administrative errors which cast doubt on the integrity of the exhibit and/or the witness presenting that evidence. Evidential can provide objective challenge in terms of reviewing fingerprint evidence and the processes and people that underpin that evidence.
Electronic Presentation of Evidence (EPE) enables both digital and traditional forms of evidence to be presented in an easily understandable format. All of our forensic services can be demonstrated via EPE, ensuring the jury can understand even the most complex evidence.
“Your work was to accurately reflect in an electronic presentation the technical evidence obtained from Prosecution witness telephone data in the context of factual events that took place. The presentations that you prepared for the Defence team were unable to be used in evidence because the Prosecution withdrew the charges against our client. However, your work showed in a devastating series of slides that the false statements made by those witnesses as to their whereabouts was contradicted by the telephone cellsite data.
I was very impressed by the quality of the work you produced for me which had the aim of saving a great deal of court time by using electronic means to represent the evidence.”
