Western Australia Branch

The WA Branch of the ANZFSS aims to raise the profile of local forensic science in Western Australia whilst bringing together scientists, practitioners, students, and others interested in all things forensic. We engage our members through various professional, outreach, and social networking activities, in addition to awards supporting professional development. In 2020, the Branch established the Society’s first Student Representative Group (SRG). This initiative aims to promote collaboration and communication among students studying or interested in forensic science, strengthening our future forensic community.
