Falls police hit cutting edge of crime scene investigation with new laser scanner

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The increasing expectations of juries in criminal cases that they will see evidence presented to them like what they view on the popular CSI series of TV shows. Of course, the TV shows present a mix of experimental technologies, not currently available to law enforcement, and glitzy gadgets that carry equally glitzy price tags. “People watch CSI and they think we have those abilities,” Falls Police Superintendent Bryan DalPorto said. Well now Cataract City cops do have that gear. For the past week, officers in the Traffic Division and Crime Scene Unit have been training on a new laser scanner capable of producing previously unimaginable three dimensional recreations of accident and crime scenes. “It measures a scene using a laser and it gives us a three dimensional map,” Police Lt. Michael Drake said. “It will give the opportunity for a jury to walk through a crime scene, three dimensionally, and allow us to incorporate actual crime scene photos in to the 3-D image.” A veteran crash management investigator and the Falls Police Department’s chief technology officer, Drake called the new scanner, “pretty cool.” The possibilities the new scanner will give police and prosecutors include being able to virtually place jurors […]

Faribault Police Department to improve its data extraction technology in 2015

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Technology: It’s everywhere. And it’s being used for crimes, too. However, solving a crime that involves technology with limited resources can be quite difficult. Currently, Faribault investigators have to thumb through a device and take pictures of its content. This method is not only outdated but time-consuming. “As far as forensic software, we are behind (the curve),” said Detective Sgt. Brandon Gliem. Depending on the size of agency, budget and jurisdiction, some police departments already have forensic units, Gliem said. Rochester, for example, created a forensics unit three to four years ago. “We have not had anything,” Gliem said. “We’ll be the first in Rice County, which is exciting.” Included in the city’s capital improvement plan this year, the police department was authorized $13,000 to purchase technology and pay for training to better equip its investigations unit with tools and knowledge to extract data from mobile cellular phones and other mobile devices. “You can almost not have a criminal event that doesn’t involve some type of technology,” said Police Chief Andy Bohlen. “We think this is going to be key in turning around cases quicker.” In the case of an emergency, the department may go to another agency, but Bohlen […]

Seattle Police Dept. hires Amazon VP as top tech exec, promising more data-driven crime-fighting

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The Seattle Police Department this morning named Amazon vice president Greg Russell as its new chief information officer — aiming to boost its technological prowess and improve its ability to use data to fight crime. Russell, 46, was previously an Amazon vice president overseeing areas including corporate applications, information technology and enterprise data warehousing. He starts at the Seattle Police Department on March 17, part of a broader management shakeup by Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole. In addition to overseeing the Seattle PD’s internal technology systems, Russell will be tasked with finding new ways of using data to track and predict crime, while balancing those capabilities with the privacy concerns of citizens. The department has been grappling with issues related to police body cameras, video disclosure, drones and other forms of emerging technology. “There will always be worries about what you’re going to do with the information,” said Russell in an interview posted this morning on the official SPD Blotter site. “If (you’re) transparent with how you’re going to use the information, and you make sure people can actually see it, I think most people will accept that.” Russell, a native of Scotland who lives on Bainbridge Island, became a U.S. citizen last year. He will make […]

Pooler police get laser crime scene scanner

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Detectives at the Pooler police department have added a new tool to help them solve crimes in west Chatham County. The FARO Technologies 3-D laser scanner the department bought in December aids forensic investigation by quickly documenting the scenes of crimes or serious wrecks through a rapid-fire series of 360-degree photographs. It creates a permanent record of scenes before they are disturbed, and the images it captures can be viewed from various angles with a computer. “The advantage of this thing is that it will end up with a three-dimensional photograph that you can move through,” said Lt. Karen Zantow, head of the department’s Criminal Investigations Division. After the scanner does its thing, a program stitches images together in a way that investigators can navigate. “It not only scans the area with the laser, it takes photos as well,” said Detective Richard Monkes, who demonstrated how the device captured a navigable image of a room at the department. “Part of the process is adding photos to the scan.” Zantow said the device might capture some things investigators miss as they work a crime scene. With the images captured by the scanner, it’s easy to go back and check. Importantly, it […]

Crime down after Hampshire police start wearing body cameras

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

That’s the conclusion of researchers at Portsmouth University’s Institute of Criminal Justice Studies. They found that public order and assault crimes dropped by 18 per cent, from just over 1,700 to 1,400 in the year that police on the Isle of Wight were wearing cameras. It also found that assaults on police went down by a third. The 160 cameras were issued to officers on the Island on 1 July 2013 and the detailed study evaluated the year prior to the issue of BWVs and the year after. Five hundred more body-worn BWV cameras will be rolled out to frontline officers in Hampshire over the next three months and the effects of that on crime rates will also be evaluated by the University of Portsmouth. Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner Simon Hayes said: ’This report identifies clear benefits to victims of crime, plus officers, and should be of some reassurance to society as a whole. In particular, outcomes for victims of domestic abuse on the Island appear to have been significantly improved as a result of evidence captured through BWV.” The impact the cameras had on public order and assault was quite impressive – a sure sign that they are […]

NSW election 2015: Coalition to boost police numbers, invest $100m in new policing technology

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Mr Baird pledged to recruit an additional 310 officers, bringing the authorised strength number to 17,000. The Premier also said 250 of the officers would be trained as serious crime investigators. The Counter Terrorism and Special Tactics Command would get an additional 50 detectives, along with the Child Abuse Squad. While visiting the Mount Druitt Police Station in Sydney’s west today, Mr Baird also promised to invest $100 million over four years in new policing technology. “This package delivers more specialist police investigators to target the most serious offences and technology to make police work safer and quicker,” he said. The funds would go towards providing police with body-worn video cameras, tablet computers and mobile fingerprint scanners. Mr Baird’s government also promised a new police station for Mt Druitt. “This building is 40 years old and is in generally poor condition,” Police Minister Stuart Ayres said. “We’re committed to providing police with the state-of-the-art facilities they need to get on and do the job they do best.” However, Labor said the Premier’s promise on police numbers was a re-announcement of an earlier pledge. Shadow treasurer Michael Daley said in 2012 the Coalition promised to boost police numbers by 309 officers, […]
