About Chris Truran

I joined the Metropolitan Police on 6th March 1975. I trained as a Scenes of Crimes Officer (SOCO). I worked in central, north and north west London. During my 38½ years I examined over 25,000 crime scenes ranging from Shop-lifting to Murder. When I started examining crime scenes DNA was in its embryonic stage.

I have 4 talks, (1) Dabs and DNA detects criminals (2) Every Contact leaves a trace (3) Digital Forensics - who is watching you and (4) a funny thing happened on the way to the Old Bailey. They all relate to aspects of forensic and fingerprint evidence used in crime investigations.
