Abstract

The use of forensic science in criminal investigation brings the occupations of forensic science and policing into an immediate and interactive relationship, This paper proposes that the tensions which can sometimes be seen in the current relationship would be reduced if both 'occupations' more ideally met the characteristics of a true professions and argues this could be met through a professional project which recognizes the increased role of the state in the regulation of professions.
