Tracy began her career in forensic investigation in 1992 at New Scotland Yard and her current role is Director of Forensic Services for CoLP. She is an advisory panel member and Trustee of Inside Justice and the current President of the British Academy of Forensic Sciences. She has worked in forensic science for 28 years, spending 17 years within the Directorate of Forensic Services at New Scotland Yard as Crime Scene Manager for the Homicide Command and latterly as Head of Forensic Intelligence. As case review specialist at LGC Forensics she headed the cold case investigation unit working on many high profile cases.

King’s Forensics and CoLP have enjoyed a successful research collaboration over many years, currently focusing on wildlife crime. The placement of CoLP fingerprint lab in the Franklin Wilkins Building is the direct result of this successful relationship.

She is currently working with the Republic of Zimbabwe Police and an in-country NGO (Non-Governmental Organisation) providing training and support for specialist wildlife teams. Tracy and staff from the forensic directorate are also supporting an on-going programme of training with ZSL (Zoological Society of London) with deliveries in Mongolia, Malaysia, Benin, and Niger.
