Criminalistic Service Department


History

The Criminalistic Services was founded in 1950. At the early stages, its five-member personnel provided only fingerprint expertise. Since Cyprus Independence in 1960, CSCP is the major provider of professional forensic science services to support the Police, the judicial investigation and the prosecution of crime on the island.

Currently, forty three persons (police rank) are employed in the Services. The majority of the personnel graduated from the Cyprus Police Academy and gained their expertise through in-house training, short-term training courses abroad and years of experience. There are also two scientists (of a postgraduate and a doctorate degree) employed in the Organisation (Physical Sciences Forensic Laboratory), thus setting a new era ahead.
