Wakefield-based manufacturing experts, Conservatory Outlet Ltd, are working with Lancashire Constabulary to help combat home-invasion crime.
As part of this work, Conservatory Outlet have provided twenty new double window units and doors to be used in training courses for Crime Scene Investigators (CSIs) across the UK.
The units will be used to train CSIs in various techniques across different environments, allowing for accurate recreation and examination of crime scenes.
In addition to CSI training, the units are also being used by Lancashire Forensic Science Academy (LFSA) to offer training to students seeking a future in forensic investigation.
The coming months are set to see additional units provided to both Lancashire Constabulary and LFSA for break-in simulation and further training.
Greg Kane, CEO at Conservatory Outlet, said he was delighted to be involved in the new initiative:
“Safety and security are at the forefront of each of the products we offer at Conservatory Outlet, so to have the opportunity to work with Lancashire Constabulary and pledge our support was something we all bought into immediately.
“It’s really gratifying to know that our products are being used to ultimately aid the long-term safety of our customers’ homes. We’re excited to see where the partnership will go in the future.”
Caroline Gray, Crime Scene Manager at Lancashire Constabulary, said she was pleased with the results thus far:
“The partnership has provided us with a fantastic opportunity to recreate true-to-life scenarios and deliver valuable training to our CSIs, without fear of causing irreversible damage to the units.
“. The partnership has proved successful so far and we are grateful for Conservatory Outlet’s support.”
