On 26 – 27 April 2017, the fifth edition of international scientific conference ”Crime
Scene” organized by Central Forensic Laboratory of the Police is going to take place. The
event is to be held during The International Fair of Technology and Equipment for the Police
and National Security Services “Europoltech” in Gdańsk.
The growing threat of terrorist attack and other disasters forces the security agencies
to verify and update the guidelines and legal regulations concerning functions of forensic
experts working in teams for crime scene investigation as part of forensic inspection of the
site of a Mass Fatality Incident. The primary goal of the conference is to open up an
exchange of experiences, best practices and legal regulations among Polish and foreign
experts. One of the topics of discussion include the coordination of duties in the field of
disaster victims identification – the international guidelines elaborated by Interpol.
The guidelines are in power in significant number of countries worldwide. It is crucial
to unify the procedures especially in context of incidents of multi-national victims; a reliable
and efficient victim identification calls for cooperation of services of various competences.
The technical input provided by international experts who have been invited to participate in
the Conference may be implemented for elaboration of a professional Polish DVI group
consisting of qualified experts and representatives of various agencies.
