Brief Abstract: In their daily activities, forensic scientists recurrently detect, collect, analyse and interpret the relics of criminal activities. Through traces, they reconstruct and explain what occurred in the past and detect patterns of repetitive crime activities. It is argued that, in addition to its traditional investigative and court functions, forensic science can help decipher crime mechanisms that can subsequently inform on disorders, deviant behaviors or more broadly on crime. This workshop aims to engage the participants with the opportunities and challenges related to the implementation of forensic intelligence. Examples including but not limited to illicit drug monitoring will highlight possibilities to extend the role of forensic science beyond traditional court purposes.
