R2S Forensic is used globally by a diverse range of clients.

Return To Scene Limited is an innovative specialist in visualisation and data technologies, software and supporting services.

Established in 2008, our continuous drive for innovation, research and development has ensured we remain at the cutting edge – setting the benchmark in visualisation and data solutions across the multiple industries we support internationally.

Our origins were in crime scene and incident investigation and we have now worked with over 30 police forces, law enforcement agencies and universities throughout the UK, EU, Canada and the US. 


R2S played a crucial role in the security preparations for the 2013 G8 conference of world leaders in Enniskillen. In the months prior to the 2-day summit, the Police Service of Northern Ireland used Version 2 of the software to record areas in and around the Lough Erne Resort. This detailed visual record of the venue’s interiors and exteriors was used as a planning tool by those who had no access to the complex. Closer to the summit, it was then used to brief politicians and security personnel at the highest level.

The completed project was also supplied on Windows tablets and laptops, providing security staff with quick and easy access to data from any location on or off site.

We use the R2S software on an almost daily basis and have achieved several notable successes.

These include, the reconstruction of a complicated fatal shooting incident in Cambridgeshire, in which the effective presentation of complex casework received praise from the presiding judge. Equally, it was also used very effectively in the conviction of the serial killer Joanna Denehey, a case comprising incredible quantities of detailed and multifaceted evidential material.

As a reconstruction platform for effectively cataloguing and presenting Major Crime casework it’s our first choice.
