Talk by by Chris Truran. Chris joined the Metropolitan Police in 1975 and worked as a Scenes of Crimes Officer (SOCO), working in central, north and north west London for over 38 years. Chris examined over 25,000 crime scenes ranging from shop-lifting to murder. Last year Chris spoke to us about the development of fingerprint and DNA technologies.

In this second talk he will cover the first use of physical trace evidence in France in 1888 to trap a murderer which marks the birth of the use of Forensic Science in crime detection. The talk will cover the Soham murders of schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman and the kidnap and murder of Sarah Payne.

A regular programme of talks is arranged by the Enfield Society. These are free to members and non-members are welcome to attend for a modest charge (typically £1 per meeting). Refreshments will be available and our sales counter will be open. Jubilee Hall, 2 Parsonage Lane, is near the junction with Chase Side and there is an access ramp for wheelchairs.
