1st Session on maintaining state of art investigations:
The state of art investigations should use biometric evidence. This includes comparing images of the eye with that of the suspect, comparing the thumbprints with those of the suspect, and examining other evidence available at the crime scene with those images that are available in the database. The most common biometric evidence is that of finger prints which can be matched from national data bases. A single thumb print is enough biometric evidence to compare and match with the thumb impression of a suspect. DNA testing is an important way of identifying a criminal. The DNA evidence at the crime scene is most valuable in identifying the perpetrator of the crime.
2nd Session on maintaining the state of art investigation:
The state of the art criminal offender supervision is done through GPS. The present crime investigation agencies have tied up with the US Military's Global Positioning System to make the supervision of a criminal offender more efficient. There is a trend that non-violent criminals should be moved to the community. The GPS system enables the crime investigator to have detailed information about the movements of the offender. Presently, the latest units available have a GPS tracking unit that must be worn on a belt by the offender when he leaves the house, there is an ankle bracelet transmitter that is worn all the time, there is charging base station that needs to be plugged into an AC power outlet and to a phone jack. Finally there is a central computer and monitoring corrections. While using an active GPS system if any violation is made by the offender, the information can be transmitted to the local community/ police station almost immediately.
3rd Session on maintaining the state of art investigation:
Every investigating officer should know how to use portable DNA testing equipment. You should be able to take it to the crime scene and detect vital evidence. Once DNA evidence is captured on site the evidence should be compared with the national DNA database. Currently, any officer involved in investigations should master at least one DNA Fingerprint Analysis Software. At the minimum the investigating officer must be able to import data and ...
