Finding the Truth

Updated Monday 3rd October 2016

What do you really know about crime? Try our interactive 'Finding the Truth' to dig way beyond the surface of forensic psychology, coroporate crime and the prison system. 

Step into a world of crime

Have you watched enough CSI to know what constitutes as good forensic evidence? Are you a believer of 'don't do the crime if you can't do the time'? How much do you know about workplace accidents? Or perhaps you have other beliefs about the criminal justice system and want to find out more? Step into three very different and immersive stories to find out what you really know about crime.
