Balancing Confidentiality and Transparency

The Forensic Science Institute Zurich pursues a policy of transparency within the limits of the law.

In the course of our activities on behalf of law enforcement agencies, we are required to maintain strict confidentiality according to Art. 320 StGB. For this reason, any information regarding ongoing investigations will only be dispensed through the public relations offices of the Zurich Canton Police or Zurich City Police, or the body in charge of the investigation.
