The “Forensic Training for Advanced Examination Methods” project has organised a seminar on digitizing Turkish forensic institutions
The main mission of this twinning project between Turkey and Spain is to increase the efficiency of forensic science and judicial procedures in Turkey. A series of training seminars has been designed where project specialists can work on new forensic analysis methods and techniques, in line with European Union practices.
The online European Union-funded project provided technical training in fingerprint detection methods, forensic photography and their use in digital analysis. There was also been an exchange of knowledge on quality standards in areas such as crime scene investigation.
Two experts from the Spanish National Police presented several documented theoretical-practical tutorials, including training in digital design tools and photographic material for forensic analysis. These presentations examined numerous cases of relevant Spanish and European experience and standards.
The Turkish participants, who mainly came from the Turkish Gendarmerie Criminal Division (JKDB) and the Laboratories of the Turkish Police Criminal Division (KPL), took part in the meeting by sharing their professional experiences, news on criminal investigation and requesting information on techniques which are not part of their routine work.
