Our Forensic Scene Investigators attend numerous scenes to search for evidence such as footwear markings, fingerprints, blood, DNA and other materials.
This photo shows our new forensic laboratory which has been built in Birmingham to provide a dedicated blood screening service on all major crime exhibits.
This image forms part of the West Midlands Police 'Photo of the Day 2012' project.
We will be adding a new photo every day of the year to highlight the breadth of work carried out by police officers and staff across the West Midlands.
