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 case.
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 within the educational material which they provide.
They both undertook in-house police training in a number of specialist areas including; DNA recovery, delivered by the Forensic Science Service, Arson Investigation, delivered by Gardiner Associates and Photography delivered by Nikon.
Throughout their time in service they both trained a large number police officers in forensic awareness and crime scene preservation, through both group sessions and one to one attachment experience.
In addition to their specialist skills, training and experience within the field, they have also worked closely with educators to ensure that the material they deliver in education is in line with the national curriculum and provides on all levels, including STEM engagement, cross curricula themes and integrated key employability skills.
Angela and Dionne have gained experience in delivering in education on all levels from Key Stage 2, up to university level. Within their first year of business, two of their largest projects included; developing and teaching on a 3rd year Crime Simulation module for Sheffield Hallam University Criminology Department, and developing a BTEC forensic investigation module as part of an applied science course.
To date they have had 100% positive feedback from their customers and the module at Sheffield Hallam was such a success, that they were invited back to help develop and deliver a 2nd year module. The working relationship with the university is ongoing.
