Forensic Identification Unit
Forensic Identification Unit members of the Kennebecasis Regional Police are responsible for providing technical and investigative expertise at all major crime scenes, including homicides, robberies, sexual assaults and break and enters. They record and preserve the crime scene, collect and analyze evidence and give expert testimony in court.
Members go through an extensive 8 week training program at the Canadian Police College in Ottawa where they acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to perform crime scene examinations. They learn how to examine and process physical evidence including fingerprints, footwear impressions and tire tracks, determine what evidence is of value, enhance digital images, prepare evidence charts and present opinion evidence in court.
