Chain of Custody (Auditing)
The chain of custody, is one of the most important aspects of a criminal investigation. It ensures that all the evidence that is collected from the crime scene, is properly recorded, packed and sealed without any contamination.

During the process of analysis, investigation and forensic processes, the use of each piece of evidence and access to it, has to be recorded. This ensure that no loss, addition or any form of contamination occurs from the collection at the crime scene, to the time of the trial.

Strathclyde Forensics can provide you with expert analysis of the chain of custody, and ensure that no contamination of evidence or discrepancies exist. Whether you are on the prosecution or the defense, the chain of custody might prove to be the most important aspect of the evidence at hand. A water tight case of chain of custody can make your case solid. Any discrepancy may work to your client's advantage if you are on the defense side.
It does not matter if the evidence in your case is about computers, drugs, weapons or anything else. The chain of custody is a process that the police in every jurisdiction must follow. The paper trail of the Chain of Custody can be audited and if discrepancies are found, then the evidence may be deemed inadmissible.
