Looking at models for #forensic science provision in England and Wales, there are some immutable truths, namely, geography, population density and crime rates (which are a reflection of both) /1
This is the map of the 43 police forces in E&, its been this way roughly since 1972, which was a great improvement on 1946 when there were 117 police forces 👀 /2 Image
the map tells us little other than where one police force ends on one begins. Lots of ways to look at population density, I like this one which plots it by 5x5kmsq. No surprises, it's the UKs immuatble truth #1, big cities, urban sprawl and the countryside /3 Image

Last year I analysed the police's responses in all the parliamentary committees on #forensic science. I produced a video I hoped would be useful if we ever have another parliamentary enquiry or if journalists decided to look into these issues again.
My goal was to show that the police responses are predictable and present a remarkably weak argument to justify their defunding of #forensic science. I hope the APPG ( fyi @ctmccartney) watch at least some of it before they question police witnesses and the FSR. /2
@ctmccartney As for us experts, everyone needs to start calling out their BS by countering it with real life examples. Please watch some of my long winded nonsense, you may find it useful when drafting your responses to the APPG. /3

A thread on #forensic toxicology, in particular the continuing problems with actually getting things tested in England and Wales /1
On the 12th October 2021 I made a FOI (Freedom of Information) request to all 43 Police Forces in England Wales following comments made by @HMICFRS in a document titled "Roads Policing: Not optional
An inspection of roads policing in England and Wales"… /2
@HMICFRS So I asked the police several questions (below). I got a response TODAY from a police force 14 months after asking for it, and within it was a set of responses which just waves massive red flags /3

I've been asked why the govt announcements of new austerity measures is so bad for private #forensic science providers /1
it should be obvious but I'll try and spell it out, here's the percentage change in external spend on forensic science by police forces 2011-2020, it's sort of a measure of volumes submitted to forensic science providers, [sort of - data provided police forces rarely clear] /2 Image
when cuts hit police forces, they do everything they can to protect their internal spend, they call it protecting the front line, but somehow we still have 43 forces, with 43 chief constables and 43 PCCs/mayors. They cut external spend to the bone, including £ to private FSPs /3

A tread to talk about MAC and IMEI addresses. Very useful in forensics and CTF investigations. 📱

These numbers are used to identify network devices and to identify related devices.


#IMEI #MAC #forensic #investigation #cyber #phone

They all do almost the same thing. The last one even allows you to see where the device was last seen, as I show you with this example. 😉

1/ Image… @GONZOs_int

Both tools allow the geolocation of MAC addresses according to public databases. The last tool combines several tools and is therefore very useful.

Given the talk about a national #forensic service I've been thinking about what that could look like in 2022, if knowing what we know now, we had a blank piece of paper and we could start anew. Building on the good stuff, learning from the rubbish stuff of the past and present/1
I've been thinking about how we could test any models proposed to fill that void. If I or anyone else came up with a model - how could we test it to assess whether it was any good or better than what we have now? /2
my process in doing so called to mind Tony Benn's 5 questions on democracy and I thought perhaps I could articulate tests for such a model in similar way /3 Image

thread - Future state of #forensic science provision in england and wales, a tale of three reports /1
TLDR - after over a decade of disasterous forensic crises, police forces finally move from denial to acceptance on the change curve, waving the white flag, telling the government they're unable to manage forensic science nationally* and ask for help
*England and Wales - /2
House of Lords report… recommend a National Institute for Forensic Science and a Forensic Science Board both independent from policing /3

I've had some time to read this now and am able to share my views on it, not sure how long this thread will be, I will unroll it at the end. Firstly an introduction to this document - what is it? It's a review requested by @PoliceChiefs into @TFProgramme and @FCNnetwork /1
@PoliceChiefs @TFProgramme @FCNnetwork AFAIK you won't find this document on the internet atm last time I visited @PoliceChiefs website it wasn't in their publication list. I'm very grateful to @PoliceChiefs for providing it to me via FOI, which they did speedily and without any quibble whatsoever. /2
@PoliceChiefs @TFProgramme @FCNnetwork I came across its existence via a very simple FOI request to PCCs asking them had they joined @FCNnetwork , Norfolk and Suffolk mentioned it in their response /3

Voter fraud was used in the 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, & 2020 elections. We saw “found” ballots for one candidate in non-approved locations. We saw unexplained data anomalies. Evidence was substantial, but no investigations?! Time to end this... #MerryChristmas #Thread
#Election2020 Massive Voter Fraud & Election Fraud Orchestrated by Democrats & Conspirators, with Cover-Up Co-Conspirators in Media & Social Media platforms. This means #RICO , #Coup , #Sedition , & #Treason.
When you have this many election officials crying foul, data scientists crying foul over voting system data, voter crying foul over votes cast fraudulently in their name, dead voters, senile nursing home residents targeted, & people hiding machines & evidence, it is malevolent.

#KarunaKumar's #Palasa1978 is made with a lot of conviction. The detailing of Slang & Language used and groundedness aspect of the movie is something that needs to be lauded. Very good Music & good Direction supported by very good performances. Powerful ending. Do watch.

7/10⭐️ Image
#ChintuKaBirthday is just fine. It has its moments. The trailer looked very promising, but the film did not have much to offer. Few decisions look forced & the "emotional punch" the makers were aiming at did not land for me. Nevertheless, makes for a good family watch.

6/10⭐️ Image
#ArunKarthick's #Nasir breaks your heart so quickly, you'll take a lot of time to recover. Beautifully shot and edited, the film will resonate with you for sure. It only takes a second for things to go out of hands and Arun pulls that off with such perfection. Must watch.

"Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" (John Lydon)

The publication of this letter & the nature of its correction raises questions about the reliability of the academic record.

@llantwit @FFLMUK @RCPath @AAPTTweets @mike4path @Richard56 @JJPJ #autopsy


When the letter by Won Sriwijitalai & Viroj Wiwanitkit was published in #JFLM, fact-checking journalists @SureAndShare in Thailand shared their concerns about it on @Twitter & @Facebook.

@SureAndShare were concerned that they were unable to verify who the 1st author was (or where they worked), or the death of a #forensic #medical professional from #COVID19. They cautioned against sharing the story.

Threat Hunting In #CyberSecurity : Waiting for an alert can be too dangerous.
Threat hunting means to proactively search for malware or attackers that are hiding in your network — and may have been there for some time.
Most time, the goals of these malware or attackers can be to quietly siphoning off data, patiently listening in for confidential information, or working their way through the network looking for credentials powerful enough to steal key information.

The #threats invaded my #Brexit #genre #thread. It was supposed to be mostly fun and #FBPE-games, but the threads turn it grim . So. I'll establish this new thread of uses of the threat as genre in the Brexit debate. It won´t be a lot of fun. #forensic #linguistics #genrestudies
Before I get going, a little piece of research dissemination on threats by my good colleagues @TanyaKaroli and @MarieEBM:

Exhibit A: @cliodiaspora has had to bear a truckload of abuse and quite a few threats for her engagement. I admire her intensely for sticking to her guns. This one is ugly in many many different ways.
