A comprehensive range of forensic services for police forces and other law enforcement agencies
Key Forensic Services is an approved forensic service provider under the National Forensic Framework Next Generation Agreement and we are currently contracted to provide our specialist services to the majority of police forces in England and Wales.
Through our network of strategically located operational sites, we offer a comprehensive range of UKAS accredited, forensic science services. We provide a one-stop shop approach for investigators and scientific support staff, supported by our scene attendance service and other support services such as specialist forensic training, advice on laboratory accreditation, including Proficiency Trials, QC and Environmental Monitoring Testing.
With our Major Incident Teams based at all of our UK sites, forensic crime scene support can be mobilised at very short notice via our Duty Manager System, which is available 24-7.
We have a highly competent, multi-skilled team of case-working scientists, all of whom are accustomed to presenting professional forensic expert opinion in the courtroom and who have many years’ experience working as forensic practitioners on routine and very high profile cases. A significant number of our forensic staff have over 20 years experience in their specialisms and are widely regarded as scientific leaders in their field.
Our business operates 7 days per week and is focused exclusively on our police customers’ requirements and the need to provide them with forensic effectiveness, unquestionable integrity and value for money.
Our own, dedicated collection and delivery service utilises a fleet of modern, un-marked vehicles all of which are equipped with the latest security, tracking and GPS technology. The majority of our drivers are ex-police staff and therefore fully appreciate the nature and requirements of our police customers.

Our laboratory number is 10308, please see www.UKAS.com for scope of accreditation.
