Welcome to

The Detective Project

The Detective Project offers forensic science-based events that explore the way in which crime is investigated in the 21st Century.

The Detective Project’s award-winning events are based on real forensic investigation techniques and are great fun for children and adults alike.

The workshops are the perfect idea for kids parties, school activities, youth groups, grown-up parties, corporate events or team-building events.

We currently operate in and around the West Country and London & South East but go on road trips to other areas.

Harrogate team

harrogate branch


Louise has been a Crime Scene Investigator (CSI) since 1997 - working in Cambridgeshire initially, and is now in based in North Yorkshire.

In this time, she has attended thousands of crime scenes, from assaults to burglaries, and robberies to suspicious deaths. Evidence which she has found and recovered as part of the investigation has led to numerous arrests and convictions, and she has many stories to tell!

When she discovered The Detective Project, Louise thought that it was an ideal way to use her skills and knowledge in both a fun an educational way, knowing how inquisitive and interested people – both young and old – are about forensic science and police investigations.

Louise now works part-time as a CSI so she can run The Detective Project events and spend more time with her young family. She loves putting the fun into science and investigation with The Detective Project.
