CSI Portsmouth 2012 - Morning Panel - Gruesome Murders
On the morning panel Carolyn Lovell, Crime Scene Manager/Coordinator for Hampshire Police, gave a fascinating insight into her role of managing crime scenes throughout the county and spoke of how the advances in science were assisting the conviction of criminals but in turn was adding to the amount of paperwork the police increasingly have to complete in order to bring a case to court.
Alongside Watch Manager Andy Earl from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Services, DC Terry Fitzjohn spoke of how Hampshire Police and Hampshire Fire and Rescue Services had combined to provide an Arson Task Force that was so successful in not only reducing arson attacks but also securing convictions that other police forces across the UK were now consulting them wishing to emulate their success.
|Matt Hilton, Stephen Booth, Pauline Rowson|
Stephen Booth, author of DC Ben Cooper and DS Diane Fry series set in the Peak District spoke of the challenges of writing a continuing series and at the same time keeping it fresh for the audience, a sentiment that was echoed by Pauline Rowson author of the DI Andy Horton series set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England.
The day was a great success, entertaining, intriguing and informative.
