Forensics. Scene of crime officer (SOCO) watching two colleagues investigate a crime scene. The SOCOs are wearing protective clothing in the form of paper suits, overshoes and masks to prevent contamination of the crime scene. Police tape has been tied to sticks, which are acting as boundary posts. Two kit bags containing tools used collect evidence can be seen (bottom right). SOCOs provide scientific support to police forces. They establish what evidence is required from a crime scene and the best way to obtain it.
Model release not available. Property release not required.
