Policing in the UK faces a series of challenges as it seeks to modernise, become more efficient, and make the most of technology and innovation to respond to modern and future demands. As an integral part of policing, forensic science is facing these challenges too.

This approach is the Forensic Capability Network (FCN).


This is a national role and will include specialist technical digital or scientific activities, guidance and support to the FCN commercial leadership and broader in policing.


This post will support activities in relation to commercial, regulatory and legal requirements, within either traditional or digital forensics.
