The Forensics Policy Steering Group was dissolved in 2019 and replaced by the Criminal Justice Board Forensics Sub-Group. The Sub-Group operates on behalf of the Criminal Justice Board to provide high-level leadership and oversight of forensic science in the Criminal Justice System (CJS).

The Sub-Group is jointly chaired by the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice, bringing together stakeholders from across policing and the CJS to ensure that forensic science capability and delivery is effective for all relevant parties.
