If you are looking for Glamour, Gadgets and Grissom you won't find them here. Forget what you think you know about 'Forensics', these are the tales of one man and his brush. Of course these views do not represent the views of any Police Force or indeed reflect any Force Policies ya da ya.

Given the current climate on the Police blogging world, the fact I have a mortgage, a Xbox 360 addiction and the overwhelming need to keep my job, I have decided to cease blogging on the world of CSI.

Unlike some other Police blogs my intention was never to criticise the way modern Police Forces are run, it's more informative whimsy than rebellious expose. I was merely trying to give people an insight into a great job and dispel a few myths generated by popular TV shows.

Unfortunately my anonymity is no longer guaranteed, also I'm sure that some of my previous posts could be construed as misconduct or disrepute if you looked closely as the wording of some force policies. To sum up it's not worth the risk.

Lastly, thanks to everyone who visited regularly and contributed their opinions, this blog will be deleted in a week.

OK, going to give this another go. Been absent from the blogging arena for a while, over the last year work has been less than shiny and the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was to write about it. Things have settled down a bit now and I am able to enjoy the job again without unecessary distractions. I'm going to at least try and update the blog once a week.

I have re-jigged things a little so any feedback is welcome, also if you want me to link to your blog then drop me an email. (and Mousie I can longer access your site :( and I would really like to start reading it again). It also appears that some have you have been visiting the site regularly to check for updates, thank you and sorry for the lack of action.

Social Help

Hello again! I have had lots of emails recently asking for help and careers advice, a lot in response to an earlier post I made. Now these people must be new around here, because I'm struggling to update my blog regularly let alone respond to individual emails!

My advice on the earlier post is still relevant today, but be wary of the current climate, you really, I mean really really need to stand out to get these jobs now as lots more people are applying for these type of posts.

However help is at hand if you use the popular social networking site known as Facebook, apparently there is a group on there called C.S.I United Kingdom (not affiliated with this blog). It has members across the UK who are either full time CSIs or people looking to get into that line of work. There is a forum within this group which can answer your questions. I believe you need to request to join the group so be nice.

Anyway I'm going to sheepishly slip off now before anyone notices I'm back (sort of).
