The Programme

The Transforming Forensics (TF) Programme is a partnership between the National Police Chiefs Council and KBR. Set up in 2017, the TF vision is to protect the public and enable justice through the most advanced and coordinated forensics. In January, the UK Government announced it will be investing £28.6m in TF to enable it to continue delivering a range of forensics products, services and capabilities that meet the changing needs of policing and the public, including work already underway and a new focus on digital forensics. The funding will help to drive advances in science and innovation, develop more efficient working practices, and offer transformational benefits to police forces and the wider forensics community.

KBR is supporting TF and has helped establish the Forensic Capability Network (FCN). The FCN aims to be the world’s most advanced and coordinated forensic network, and has already had a positive impact, working with forces directly on forensics accreditation, and managing critical engagement with suppliers and other stakeholders at the national level. The programme is building on this, to deliver a step-change in the use of forensics in protecting the public and ensuring justice is served.
