Forensics Manager Paul Dainty will provide insights into the current challenges faced in managing digital forensics alongside conventional wet forensics. He will look at the crime trends we face, and how finance is at the heart of what motivates the criminals and also defines what we can and can’t do in response.
As Head of the City of London Police Fingerprint Enhancement Laboratory, Fingerprint Bureau and Hi-Tec Crime Unit (Digital Forensics), Paul manages a team of forensic specialists. With over 30 years’ experience in the field of forensics, he has represented the UK in overseas Disaster Victim Identification deployment, such as the response to the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. He has also served on secondment with the PSNI to assist in the investigation of the former “troubles” in Northern Ireland. Paul was selected as the Western European (as it was then) delegate for the development of fingerprint examination techniques in Albania and is currently engaged in the development of fingerprint examination techniques to support the investigation of International wildlife crime in Zimbabwe. He has also been fortunate to chair and present at the APAC Police Technology conference in Malaysia pre-Pandemic in 2019.

During this sesison, Dr Mclnerny will be presenting a contemporary case of killing and subsequent poisoning by a mentally disordered offender and the issues the case raises about modern forensic risk assessment and management.
He will then discuss the historical case of Graham Young, also known as the Teacup Poisoner, who was a high profile poisoner and killer in the 1960s, whose serious reoffending lead to the first major reviews of forensic psychiatry and the development of secure psychiatric services. The speaker will use this to explore the similarities between the two cases 60 years apart.
