Forum highlights crime scene awareness

Mr David Swanepoel, a volunteer from the DNA Project, informed domestic workers of the ways to preserve a crime scene, ensuring it is not contaminated.

The Bedfordview domestic worker’s forum meeting took place at the Methodist Church in Bedfordview on Wednesday, March 26.

The meeting featured Mr David Swanepoel, a volunteer from The DNA Project, an initiative that creates crime scene awareness in South Africa.

Mr Swanepoel informed domestic workers of the various principles connected to crime scenes, the types of crime scenes, the types of evidence and the ways of persevering a crime scene to ensure it is not contaminated.

Mr Swanepoel also emphasised the importance of DNA, how easily it spreads and the sort of evidence which can contain DNA evidence, such as blood, skin, saliva and hair.

“Robberies and theft at houses are often common-place. In some instances, the domestic workers are the first ones on the scene. This is why it is important that domestic workers know what to do because it can help preserve the crime scene before the police arrive for investigations,” said Mr Swanepoel.
