Polish Forensic Association conducts extensive specialised activity, performing with expertise in various fields of forensic science for judicial bodies, law firms, administration offices and other institutions or private individuals.
Every Specialisation is performed in the Forensic Laboratory of the Criminalistics Institute, where there are specialised analytical equipment, with resources and software provided.
PTK experts are highly qualified specialists with recognition in the forensic environment, who after meeting the stringent requirements of the qualification procedure, by decision of the Scientific Council, obtain the title of Forensic Association of Poland expert.
PTK currently has staff consisting of more than 130 experts (mainly former experts of the Central Forensic Laboratory, police laboratories and also university researchers). While working for PTK they have published over 18,000 documents of expertise for law enforcement, criminal justice and other clients. We offer short terms of expertise (typically from 2 weeks to 30 days, and in urgent cases even less).
The Criminalistics Institute leads, among other projects, training for banks, insurance companies and other institutions. Examples of training courses topics include:
Modern methods of recognising/acknowledging authenticity of protected documents (ID cards, passports, driving licences, proofs of registration, visas, etc.)
Modern methods of recognising/acknowledging the authenticity of unprotected documents (certificates of employment, ZUS (Social Insurance Institution) certificates, REGON (National Business Registry Number) certificates, taxation certificates, etc.)
Modern methods of recognising/acknowledging the authenticity of national and foreign banknotes.
Analysis of handwriting and signatures to ascertain inauthenticity of these records/notations.
We also organise other training courses compatible with the profile of Polish Forensic Association activities.
