How they changed the world

The Australian-developed Polilight was a game changer for modern policing and helped solve countless crimes around the world.

Developed by the Australian Federal Police in the 1980s, it enables forensic scientists to detect otherwise invisible fingerprints, bodily fluids, blood stains and revealing document forgeries.

Today, the Polilight, or a variation of it, is used in 98 per cent of crime scene investigations.

It was widely popularised on fictional crime TV shows such as C.S.I.
