Encyclopedia > Scenes of Crime Officer

A Scenes of Crime Officer (SOCO) (pronounced SOCK-oh) is an officer who gathers forensic evidence for the British police. SOCOs are usually civilians, not police officers, but are employed by the police forces. Evidence collected is passed to the detectives of the Criminal Investigation Department and to the forensic laboratories. The SOCOs do not investigate crimes or analyse evidence themselves.

SOCO - Scenes-of-crime officer (633 words)
Identifying evidence in a systematic crime scene examination is the hallmark of a highly competent forensic examiner.
The workload of a SOCO is often high and it is important for the officers to have suitable temperament and disposition to deal with, at times, abhorrent and distasteful scenes and investigations.
It is also important for officers to continue their police studies and specialist training in order to keep abreast of new methods and continued knowledge and skills development for them to progress to the higher positions in the specialist field and other policing areas.
