SYNETIQ supports West Yorkshire Police CSIs

West Yorkshire Police’s brand-new Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) training facility has received a donation of two vehicles from SYNETIQ.

 

 

The relationship between West Yorkshire Police and SYNETIQ is well established; the dismantling and recycling business already ensures the compliant processing of the Police’s salvage and end of life vehicles.

The new training facility is based at Wetherby Police Station and will be used for practising and skills development by Crime Scene Investigators. Vehicles used in crimes can contain key clues, such as fingerprints, hairs or other physical evidence. Regular training is key for all CSI teams, as the job they do can make a huge difference to the outcome of a case.

SYNETIQ donated two undamaged vehicles, a Volkswagen Golf and Polo. The cars were drained of fuel and batteries disconnected before being delivered free of charge. The vehicles will be exchanged once West Yorkshire Police have completed the training.
