About

Meet the Directors

CSI Training and Events Ltd was founded in May 2012.  The company was established by experienced Crime Scene Investigators Angela Davies and Dionne Wightman, who previously served within Northumbria Police Scientific Support Department.  In our time with the police we each attended thousands of Crime Scenes including volume and major category crimes, with both being involved in some high profile cases.

All of our services have been developed purely through our experiences. We have brought our skills, knowledge and training from the public sector and are now transferring them into the private sector, taking a more proactive approach to tackling crime.  We know our ideas and training methods work because they are tried and tested in the field, for example;

  • We trained countless police officers in forensic awareness and evidence preservation, continuously improving the productivity of the forensic department
  • We gave continuous crime prevention advice to thousands of victims of crime, helping to prevent future incidents
  • In repeat incidents where we were not forensically successful, we looked at ways of improving the environment and setting forensic traps. Therefore the next time an offender struck, we had an increased opportunity of gathering evidence against them.  This worked on many occasions and lead to the identification of offenders, who were eventually brought to justice.

Both Angela and Dionne have a wealth of experience in the area of Crime Scene Investigation, however both also have individual specialist skills in key areas, which complement the business allowing them to offer more to their clients.
