Wynyard Investigations Case Management (Software)

Investigations teams are under increasing pressure to deliver results rapidly, but they face significant challenges, including fewer resources than ever. Wynyard Investigations Case Management (ICM) is the most comprehensive and flexible out-of-the-box solution for managing cases and investigations, and lets you collect, collate and evaluate all your case data in one place. Developed in partnership with leading police forces, ICM is used to manage a wide range of case types, from organized crime to human trafficking to homicides to corruption cases to managing confidential informants, and many more. It helps investigations teams build, manage and close cases more efficiently and effectively. It can be deployed rapidly, shaped to meet your organization's specific needs and provides high security. For more information, go to www.wynyardgroup.com. Request a demo or an introductory meeting.

Wynyard Advanced Crime Analytics (Software)

Wynyard Advanced Crime Analytics gives frontline investigators and analysts the power to quickly analyze large volumes of data to discover key insights needed to solve crimes, stop threats, identify suspects and build cases. Critical information that can drive investigations is often hidden, but Advanced Crime Analytics uses link analysis, visualization and detection to quickly reveal what's important, and find intelligence that would otherwise be missed. It is easy to use and fast to deploy, so agencies do not need to have a team of embedded IT support specialists on hand to keep it running. Another key advantage is its ability to analyze unstructured data --- so social media posts, text messages, arrest reports, intelligence reports, and all types of text can now be analyzed and linked to other entities. Learn more at www.wynyardgroup.com. Request a demonstration or introductory meeting. We may be able to assist with grant applications as well.

The spatial distribution of smoking violations on a non-smoking campus: Implications for prevention (Article)

Objective: The present study extends research on campus smoking bans by examining where smokers are violating the policy at a large university in the southeastern region of the United States. Participants: The data collection was conducted by one graduate student from the university in August of 2014. Methods: A global positioning system device was used to collect the geo-coordinates of littered cigarette butts as a proxy measure for smoking violations. Results: A hot spot analysis found a number of spatial concentrations on campus, largely around classroom and administrative buildings along with parking lots and garages. Conclusions: The implications of such findings can direct enforcement to target these areas in order to reduce offenses and fulfill the initial goals of policy-makers and university administrators who support smoke-free campuses.

Six “Must Have” Tools for Crime Analysts (Article)

Crime Analysts across the country are becoming the secret weapons for their organizations. Their crime products, whether the identification of crime patterns, problem areas, or spotting repeat offenders, are helping organize and prioritize crime reduction responses and community policing efforts.

To empower these secret weapons, crime analysts must have the proper tools to be successful in their roles. In this article we identify the top seven tools every crime analyst must own.

Chemical-metallographic test with nitric acid on the vehicle body and chassis of steel (Article)

The alteration of a vehicle identification characteristics is
carried out with the use of emery and sandpaper to erase
the information in order to subsequently superimpose different
numeric or alphanumeric codes, thus preventing the
verification of its former origin or ownership and hindering
its tracking. Chemical attack has been recognized as the
most sensitive technique to retrieve altered serial numbers,
and this article was aimed at assessing the effectiveness
of nitric acid (HNO3) 3.15 M in revealing them on body and
chassis surfaces with steel, low-carbon and medium carbon
steel alloys respectively. Four tests were performed: (i)
Bodywork: marking, and erasing with grinding machine,
(ii) bodywork: marking with electric pen, and manual deletion;
(iii) chassis: marking, and manual deletion, and (iv)
manual marking, and erasing with grinding machine. In all
tests carried out, erased markings were retrieved in a few
seconds, with definition and contrast.

Data Cop: Law Enforcement Officials See a Bigger Place for Crime Analysts in Policing (Article)

Article discusses how data-driven methods in policing continue to grow.

Ripeness and Hot Spots in Time: Possible Futures in Micro Place-Based Policing  (Article)

Place-based policing is known to help decrease crimes. Specific areas have properties that make them more attractive for specific types of crimes. Crime analysis seems to have moved from a more generalized mapping of hot spots to a more finely-grained map. The term “Micro” has become common in geospatial studies.

In policing, predictive analytics uses micro-level analysis, which allows crime analysts to make more mathematically sophisticated analyses of place and crime. Using predictive analytics, one can identify areas where increased police patrol is required to deter criminal activity.

At the September 2014 IACA, Training Conference I demonstrated a prototype technique to identify grid squares, wherein specific crime types were occurring at unusual levels. At the end of that demonstration, I proposed several phenomena for future study. The purpose of this paper is to further explain and identify methods to isolate these phenomena.

Touting Prevention, Police Put Crime Info Online (News)

Reporting for Stateline, a national policy blog initiative with The Pew Charitable Trusts, Jenni Bergal highlights how police departments are using data to map crime online. She finds that police departments are using digital crime maps, like RAIDS Online, to make crime information available to the public. RAIDS includes "density map" analysis and other tools that are being implemented by law enforcement.

Through online crime mapping sites, agencies have better identified problem areas and can police smarter, as well as raise public awareness about certain crime sprees or public safety in general. With these tools, the public also has access to crime data and can make better decisions on how to stay safe without directly contacting local law enforcement with questions.

Bergal also analyzes Indiana's efforts at mapping the location of methamphetamine lab seizures and making that data available online, which has led to interest from real estate and the public.
