Non Police Services

Key Forensic Services Ltd. (KFS) is one of the leading forensic service providers in the UK. We offer a wide range of forensic expert witness services to our criminal and civil litigation customers, ensuring compliance with the very highest quality standards at all times.

Our goals are achieved by fully understanding our customers’ requirements and the need to provide forensic effectiveness, unquestionable integrity and value for money.

We have made a significant investment in our own well-equipped, secure, state-of-the-art forensic laboratories. These facilities are amongst the best in the country and include a purpose-built firing range (with test-firing tanks) and a self-contained wet room to enable crime scene reconstruction, including Blood Pattern Analysis. We have facilities dedicated to the examination of questioned documents and CCTV/Image Enhancement and Analysis experts.

Many of our forensic expert witnesses are leaders in their specialist fields and have over 20 years experience in challenging prosecution cases and presenting defence forensics to the courts.

In addition to our forensic expert witness services, we also provide a full suite of routine and specialist DNA services including Legal (court-directed) and Immigration relationship testing.

Our laboratories have well-equipped search and recovery facilities allowing our defence scientists to undertake detailed examinations of exhibits, using high power microscopy and other techniques to maximise the opportunity to recover evidential material. This is supported by a wide range of analytical techniques used to aid the detection and identification of for example, accelerants, drugs, paint, fibres and glass.

The interpretation and reporting of findings is carried out by our forensic defence experts to the highest possible standards, with peer review forming an important part of the process. 

Our defence forensics laboratories are strategically located across the UK and are on prestigious science parks, within easy access of the motorway networks.

A Recent Customer Comment:

I thought it quite appropriate as my investigation draws to a close, just to forward a short note of gratitude and sincere thanks for providing such exceptional standards of service. Without doubt, your company’s array of forensic services have vastly shortened my investigation into a recent incident, saving substantial time and resources.

Right from the start, once you fully understood exactly what had happened. Your guidance was paramount in establishing a choice of paths to follow, along with any associated staged cost. This again, saved valuable time and unnecessary cost.

My sincere thanks again, to both you and your colleagues at Key Forensic Services
