A Visit from Constable Netterfield & Sergeant Moulden

Last Thursday we had Constable Netterfield (Ash) & Sergeant Moulden (Randall) visit our class to show us their Forensic Science kit and to answer our questions regarding this kit and it’s use. This term with Mrs Cannon we are completing a project titled ‘Catch the Crook’ as part of our Technologies unit of work. Students have to design a Crime Scene Investigation kit, a box/suitcase or bag and six items inside it that can be used for collecting evidence at a crime scene. Ash & Randall showed us how to collect fingerprints and DNA evidence and explained to us how this evidence is analysed and used to catch criminals. We are still making our kits and have invited them back to view them upon completion and provide us with feedback as to how useful they would be. Randall also said they hope to fingerprint us when they return…here’s hoping we’re not recognised on their database!!


The real kit that we are replicating.

Thanks for the visit!

  1. That was a really fun day because we got to meet the police and learnt how fingerprint dust is used. Mrs Cannon that was a really big paragraph but it was really good😄
