Annotation: The Spring of 1980 marked the beginning of a new era in computing in the Home Office Forensic Science Service initiated by the arrival at the Central Research Establishment of a Prime 550 computer.
Abstract: This paper describes the development of time-sharing computer system based on the Prime 550, for use by a national forensic science system. Experiences with the running of the service, the applications developed and the difficulties encounted are given.
