    The COVID-19 pandemic has forced forensic practitioners to consider how we perform our normal duties, especially when those duties involve humans. The potential for contracting the virus from working in close contact with living sufferers is high, and we have yet to fully determine the risk of infection from the deceased. In an attempt to support the community, the Journal of Forensic & Legal Medicine has drawn together three articles which underline the importance of continued forensic medical practice during the pandemic and highlight some factors to consider in a Roadmap towards safe practice. Our Roadmap has intentionally taken an international perspective and supports other work we have published in the Journal on our collective response to the COVID-19 crisis.

    The gendered profession of police, as well as domestic violence as a societal problem, is central to the discussion surrounding gender and equality and forms a strongly debated foundation of research. This paper presents empirical findings from the associations between gender and police response to domestic violence in Finland. The data is a rare combination of official police data and survey data from frontline police and includes 410 police emergency call-outs. The results indicate that the combination of a male victim and two male police officers is the least likely to result in the recording of an offence, arrest, or referral to support services. Findings are examined in comparison to prior research concerning police response to domestic violence, and implications for policy and practice are discussed. The study raises issues about gender and policing that should also be examined in other countries and jurisdictions in relation to policing domestic violence.

    Reports of the Finnish Environment Institute 3/2015
    The report describes the results of the joint Polish–Finnish sampling expedition aimed at estimating the possible effects of the two Polish phosphogypsum stacks located in Wislinka (Gdańsk) and Police on the loading of the Baltic Sea and the nearby watercourses. The joint expedition was based on the agreement between the Polish and Finnish Ministers of the Environment in June 2013. The results indicate a clear effect of the phosphogypsum stack on phosphate and total phosphorus concentrations in the Martwa Wisla. The physical nature of the basin with no permanent flow into the sea weakens mixing and dilution and may cause a local enrichment of pollutants from external sources, compared with a normal river having a constant water flow into the sea. Our suggestion is that a comprehensive study should be carried out in the stack area of Wislinka, as well as in the Martwa Wisla and its catchment area, to be able to calculate water and phosphorus mass balances in the area, and the magnitude of inputs of phosphorus to the Baltic Sea caused by the stack. The role of sediments as sinks and sources of phosphorus and other pollutants in the Martwa Wisla should be studied as well. In Police the effects of the phosphogypsum stack were less obvious. This could be expected as a result of effective mixing and dilution due to the high flow in the Oder River. Additionally, measures have been implemented to prevent leakage, by means of a hydraulic barrier and by collecting runoff water and directing it to the local wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). However, the results of the present expedition and also the results of the local monitoring programme from 2008 to 2012 indicate that the effects of the phosphogypsum stack on the quality of the recipient water cannot be ruled out. In order to estimate possible leakages in Police we suggest that an intensive monitoring programme for both groundwater and surface waters would be initiated. The sampling frequency for monitoring the leakage from the phosphogypsum stack should be increased to at least 12 annual samples at both the upstream and downstream stations. In addition, the water flow of the Oder between the stack and the nearby island should be continuously monitored. This would enable a reliable estimation of the potential phosphorus load into the Baltic Sea caused by the stack.

    Lääkärillä on velvollisuus ilmoittaa poliisille ja lastensuojelulle, jos hänelle työssään herää epäily lapseen kohdistuneesta pahoinpitelystä. Rikoksesta ei tarvitse olla varmoja todisteita. Kun ilmoitus on tehty, rikosepäilyn tutkinta kuuluu poliisille. Jos lääkäri on epävarma, täyttyykö ilmoitusvelvollisuus, on suositeltavaa konsultoida poliisia tai lasten oikeuspsykiatrian työryhmän asiantuntijaa tai sosiaalipediatrian erikoislääkäriä lähimmässä yliopistosairaalassa. Pahoinpitelyn tunnistaminen on vaikeaa, mutta asiantuntijoiden konsultointi ja viranomaisyhteistyö helpottavat asioiden selvittämistä.

    - Seksuaalirikosten uhrien tutkimukset keskittyvät yliopistosairaaloiden yhteydessä toimiviin Seri-tukikeskuksiin ja pienempiin ”satelliittikeskuksiin” keskussairaaloissa. - Seri-tukikeskuksessa seksuaaliväkivallan uhri saa tarvitsemansa oikeuslääketieteellisen tutkimuksen, lääketieteellisen hoidon ja psykososiaalisen tuen samasta paikasta riippumatta siitä, onko hän tehnyt rikosilmoituksen. - Oikeuslääketieteellinen tutkimus näytteenottoineen voidaan tehdä seitsemän vuorokauden ajan tapahtuman jälkeen, mutta parhaat näytteet saadaan kolmen vuorokauden kuluessa.
