Forensic training. Scene of crime officer (SOCO) taking a photograph of a dummy representing a murder victim (left). A second and third SOCO are inspecting the 'victim' and its shallow grave from different angles. The SOCOs are wearing protective clothing in the form of paper suits, overshoes and masks to prevent contamination of the crime scene. Metal platforms (left of dummy) are used by the SOCOs to walk across the site, preventing destruction of evidence. SOCOs provide scientific support to police forces. They establish what evidence is required from a crime scene and the best way to obtain it. Photographed on a training course.
Model release available. Property release not required.
