Today marks the opening of GKA Investigations Group in Perth.
Led by Forensic Fire Examiner, Peter Jeffrey, the new office ensures WA businesses have full access to GKAIG’s factual and forensic expertise and services.
Peter, a Western Australian himself, is excited to be back in WA and leading the investigative team. A highly-credentialed science-based Forensic Fire Investigator, Peter completed his Bachelor of Chemistry at the University of Western Australia and obtained the specialised qualification of Fire Debris Analyst from University Central Florida, USA. A former Dux of the Western Australia Police Academy, Peter’s undergone rigorous training in forensic fire scene examination. Since joining GKA five years ago, he’s also achieved his Masters in Forensic Science at the University of Technology Sydney and completed the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI) Motor Vehicle Fire Investigation Course.
Peter was also instrumental in GKA Analytical Services obtaining globally-recognised certification by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) for their in-house specialist laboratory.
GKAIG’s services have been available in WA for some time but having investigators now based in Perth ensures a quick response to clients’ needs and the ability to provide a comprehensive service backed by local knowledge.
