Radiological Crime Scene Management is the process used to ensure safe, secure, effective, and efficient conduct of operations at a radiological crime scene. Managing a radiological crime scene is a key part of responding to a nuclear security event. Evidence collection at a radiological crime scene may share a wide range of characteristics with that of conventional crime scenes, such as...
36. Developing Traditional Forensic Science Exploitation of Contaminated Exhibits Recovered from a Nuclear Security Event
Dr G. A. Graham (United Kingdom)

Previous investigations of materials recovered from illicit trafficking events have highlighted the benefit of encompassing both nuclear forensic science and traditional forensic science studies to maximise exploitation and interpretation . While nuclear forensic science focuses on the characterisation of the recovered unknown radionuclide material, traditional forensic science provides...

Crime scene management and the analysis of forensic evidence get significantly more complex if radioactive contamination is present. For analysis of classical forensic evidence, different strategies can be chosen such as establishment of a forensic laboratory which is licensed and equipped to handle radioactive materials or decontamination of evidence for subsequent analysis in a classical...
8. Translating Research Findings into Operational Capabilities in Nuclear Forensics: The Australian Experience
Mr D. Hill (Australia)
7/8/14, 12:10 PM
The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is home to the Nuclear Forensic Research Facility (NFRF), which was commissioned in 2009. The NFRF is the central hub for nuclear forensics in Australia and possesses the unique capabilities required to undertake nuclear forensic analyses in support of investigations. Such capabilities include; facilities for handling...
