Supporting you in every way

Standing side-by-side

Law enforcement has never faced quite so many concurrent challenges. From the Forensic Science Regulator Act 2021 with its redefined Code of Practice setting a now statutory standard; to the explosion in digital evidence that continues to create huge pressures around device backlogs and internal resourcing; from increasingly sophisticated criminal behaviour to the rise in novel software and hardware that is enabling it.

It’s these investigative units and digital forensic teams that CCL supports every day in our shared mission: to protect individuals and communities from harm. For 25 years we have worked alongside the National Crime Agency, the Metropolitan Police, UK regional forces, HM Government, the defence and intelligence communities and international agencies around the world. We’re rising to the challenges together, finding more evidence, faster – and impacting investigations sooner.

Why CCL is the first choice for law enforcement 

We can always point to the past – 25 years of delivering to the highest standards, providing defensible evidence that can be trusted in court to help secure convictions. But we’re more focused on the future and our ability to help police forces comply with new statutory standards, cope with exponential device growth and chase down the digital evidence.

These are the things that matter to them:

As one of the first Forensic Service Providers to transition to the new Code of Practice, our accredited services can help plug any internal gaps for forces that are not yet able to demonstrate compliance to the Code

No-one else can offer such breadth and depth of expertise nor match our levels of innovation.
