ScenePro Digital Forensics wins national recognition at awards ceremony

September 2021 saw ScenePro Digital Forensics, a Yorkshire based instrumentation developer announced as winners of the coveted ‘SME News - British Made Awards’ in two categories. ‘Most Innovative Forensic Product’ and ‘Best Scene Data Collection Solution 2021’. These prestigious national awards recognise the company’s innovative forensic data acquisition solutions and the contribution they make to enhancing the standards of serious, fatal and life changing road collision investigations within the UK and overseas.

The company, launched in 2013, worked closely with Collision Investigators from around the world to define and finalise the specification of their new technology. In 2019, the UK Forensic Science Regulator and National Police Chiefs’ Council implemented a programme to modernise and transform criminal forensics. Part of that requires Police Forensic Collision Investigators to conduct all future investigations to internationally agreed ISO/IEC 17020/17025 standards. In consideration of this, ScenePro identified significant technology gaps and responded by developing a range of ground-breaking new instruments for use by collision investigators and reconstructionist. 2 years later, following a programme of scientifically robust police and independent automotive industry evaluation, ScenePro became the only manufacturer within their market sector to offer instrumentation that complies with the new requirements.

The company is now engaged in rolling out their Cl 200 TS and SDIS instrumentation and manufacturer training courses to all 43 Police Forces in England and Wales.

Michael Peck, Managing Director of ScenePro explained “our forensic instrumentation is an excellent example how advancing technologies can be exploited to great advantage by collaborating effectively with subject matter experts”. He went on to say “/ am enormously proud of the achievements of the team | have around me. They have worked tirelessly to bring Cl 200 to market and it is their dedication and commitment that has placed us in the world leading position we find ourselves in today”.

Louis Peck (no relation to the MD of ScenePro) the Managing Director of Axiom Forensic in California, is a respected specialist investigator who sits on the Governing Board of Directors at ACTAR, the Accreditation Commission of Traffic Accident Reconstructionist in the USA. Louis concisely said about the new technology “Gold, I'll be presenting ScenePro data in a couple of weeks and they're going to be blown away - this is what we’ve been after for years”.

Paul Ripley, a former presenter of Channel 5’s ‘Driven’ programme and CEO of Distraction Drivers commented “ScenePro is a fantastic story and its place in crash causation investigations, along with the science behind the technology, is both incredible and fascinating at the same time”.
