The word Forensic is generally misunderstood by the majority of people. This is again largely because of the proliferation of television shows and movies that are produced these days that relate to the forensic gathering of evidence. You need not necessarily be a scientist to be able to gather evidence forensically, however in most cases, evidence that is to be presented in court is generally more readily accepted by the court if the person who has gathered the evidence has a qualification or a reputation accepted by the court that relates to that gathering, and has gathered that evidence utilising accepted protocols to protect the integrity of that evidence.

There are many case histories in Australia where evidence has been collected in a manner that has been deemed to be less than acceptable and most notably in the Azaria Chamberlain case and that of the Michelby brothers. Most recently, the Allan Mallard case in Western Australia demonstrated again how in all three of these cases, the persons charged and gaoled were incorrectly dealt with and all because the evidence gathered was not gathered appropriately or by accepted legal forensic means.

Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group realises the importance of gathering evidence in a form that reduces if not totally negates the possibility of that evidence being corrupted or challenged. Evidence must be gathered in a way that leaves little or no doubt about the absolute integrity of that evidence to ensure it is accepted by the court and is unable to be questioned or have doubt about it’s integrity sustained by parties to the court proceedings. This is why Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group has over the past 24 years surrounded itself with persons skilled in all kinds of forensic investigation and evidence gathering.
