Revamp Crime Scene Investigation Procedure, Use Technology: SC to Govt

New Delhi: Underscoring the importance of technology in criminal investigation, the Supreme Court has asked the Central government to consider a rehaul of crime scene investigation procedure by making digital photography and videography a must.

According to the Court, the digital photographs and videos should be recorded without delay and must be shared across various police stations on a real time basis so as to make criminal investigation sharper and faster.

“We have seen how Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officers in US visit the crime scene with body-worn cameras. This act as a deterrent apart from being a useful tool in collecting evidence,” observed a bench of Justices Adarsh K Goel and Uday U Lalit on Tuesday.

Initiating its exercise with the crime scene photography, the bench pointed out that cameras with

Punjab’s chief minister has not taken his foot off the pedal on Zainab’s case, as is evident from his recent visit to the office of DPO Kasur. The investigations, however, have not yielded much so far. The killer is still at large.

While investigations are under way, it is interesting to note that almost all the threads pursued by the police so far — CCTV footage, DNA and call records — relate to technology. Had the crime been committed only

Lakewood Police use drone technology to increase efficiency

The next time you see Lakewood Police respond to a missing persons call don’t be surprised if you also see an unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone, hovering above helping with the search.

The department began using drone technology at the end of 2017. That’s when its Unmanned Aerial System program was established.

Before capturing bird’s eye view of Lakewood, policy regulations were drafted about how and when the devices will be used. The city’s public safety advisory committee helped draft the document.

The regulations were sent to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which vetted and reviewed them before ultimately issuing a Certificate of Authorization.

The city’s policies state drone technology can only be used for specific operations including:

GNTC’s Criminal Justice Technology program offering hands-on drone use

From tracking weather to handling traffic situations, drones are allowing authorities to have eyes on areas they would not usually be able to access easily.

Because of this Georgia Northwestern Technical College has purchased two new DJI-series Phantom drones and is training law enforcement students to use them in the field.

GNTC Criminal Justice Technology Director Tony Adams, who has over 13 years field experience with Georgia’s State Board of Pardons and Paroles, said these unmanned and compact remote-controlled vehicles are helping change the way many departments are getting their jobs done.

“As more and more departments deploy drones they continue to prove their value,” added Adams. “They provide incredible situational awareness to emergency services teams. Police officers, fire fighters, and SWAT teams across the country use drones for search and rescue, crime scene investigation, accident investigation, criminal pursuit, forest fire tracking, and damage assessment. Drones are not just toys or flying cameras.”

Archaeologists will use ‘CSI’-like technology to study 2500-year-old remains near Athens

More than 2,500 years ago, an Athenian nobleman named Cylon — the first recorded Olympic champion — tried to take over the city of Athens and install himself as its sole ruler.

According to Thucydides and Herodotus, Athenian and Greek historians who wrote about the coup, Cylon enticed an army of followers to enter the city and lay siege to the Acropolis.

They were defeated, but Cylon managed to escape.

Now archaeologists in Athens believe they may have found some of the remains of Cylon’s army in a mass grave in Phaleron, four miles south of downtown Athens.

The discovery of the 80 skeletons of men is “unequaled” in Greece, said site project director Stella Chrysoulaki.

The men, young and well-fed, were found lying in the unmarked grave in three rows, some on their backs while others were tossed facedown on their stomachs.

Technology offers new ways to lift crime scene latent prints

The new technique is not limited to a crime laboratory setting, but can be utilized at the crime scene

By Dena Weiss, Faculty Member, Criminal Justice at American Military University

In a crime scene examination, investigators are responsible for collecting items of evidence and processing the items for possible latent prints. Latent prints are left by chance on a surface when someone touches an item. The latent print represents a partial impression of the unique ridge pattern located on an individual’s fingers and palms.

Evidence that is collected is categorized as nonporous, semi-porous or porous. Nonporous evidence can include weapons, vehicles, glass bottles, and plastic bags. Semi-porous evidence can include magazines, varnished wood, and some plastic materials. Porous evidence includes paper, unfinished wood, and fabrics.

Latent prints on nonporous surfaces can pose a challenge for investigators because they are very fragile. They consist of 99% water and approximately 1% amino acids, lipids, and other
