Digital Forensics has over two hundred staff, supporting the delivery of digital forensics services to policing; from self-service equipment used by police officers themselves, to eight digital forensic hubs around London providing increased capability to front-line officers, to our digital forensic laboratories in Lambeth providing specialist techniques and support.
