Presented by Christopher Bruce

“Criminal Profiling in Crime Analysis” attempts to demystify “profiling” as an arcane discipline belonging solely to FBI agents and investigators of serial murders, and to seat it where it belongs: among the many techniques employed by tactical crime analysts. In this session, analysts learn about the sources of information used to profile serial offenders and to use the techniques of profiling to make inferences in common crime series, like burglary, robbery, and auto theft. Some time is allotted to geographic profiling. Misconceptions, mythologies, and limitations of profiling are also discussed. This webinar is useful for crime analysts, police officers, investigators, criminologists, and anyone who wants to use the techniques of inference to aid in serial crime investigations.

The Peeping Tom is a particularly unsettling kind of predator. Often, they stalk and violate victims inside the comfort and safety of their own homes without them ever knowing. A peeper that decides to prey on innocent young girls is an extra layer of creep. This presentation will examine one such lowlife who thought he could get away with such nefarious activity in the City of Scottsdale. Through some good old-fashioned police work, and harnessing the power of Google data, one analyst was able to assist in putting this predator’s prowl to an end, providing investigators with even more damning evidence used to further exact justice.

The entire series will be reviewed from the initial discovery, investigation process, suspect identification, arrest, and interrogation. This course will highlight the use of mapping and analyzing specific user data from Google. In addition, we will review how to obtain this data from Google along with best practices when analyzing such data. This class will provide a fascinating case study, insight to working with Google data, and offer various tips and tricks for working a future peeping predator series

In Fall 2019, the Fairfax County Police Department (FCPD) in Virginia incorporated three analysts into its Crisis Negotiations Team after several years of not having one. The analysts worked together with commanders to establish roles and responsibilities as well as a response plan most conducive to information gathering. The presenters will discuss the benefits and limitations in responding to an off-site location and how they have evolved since their first barricade. They will describe how they addressed the unidirectional flow of information present at the first incident by actively participating in team meetings and becoming trainers for the department’s crisis negotiations school. The presenters will also use several case studies to demonstrate how they collect and prioritize intelligence on a subject then communicate that information to the negotiators. The analysts continue to work with the FCPD Crisis Negotiations Team to improve data sharing during and after an incident but much progress has been made since they were introduced to the team in 2019.

Este webinar tiene por objetivo repensar la elaboración y el análisis de las redes de vínculos, las cuales deben asumirse y articularse con otras técnicas y métodos que permitan diseñar de mejor forma estrategias para desarticular a las organizaciones criminales. El análisis de redes sociales y sus métricas, deben sumar un análisis cualitativo que permita complementar y desarrollar posibles escenarios de las organizaciones criminales.

Exogamia, es un término biológico utilizado para expresar la combinación entre individuos genéticamente no relacionados, evitando la endogamia y creando descendencia diversa. El género homo ante la variabilidad evolutiva está influido por una miríada de factores que repercuten a nivel molecular de complejos genotípicos, algunos de ellos proyectados en manifestaciones fenotípicas que confluyen para dar lugar a la morfología fisonómica de cada ser.

Los métodos antropológicos para estimar la estatura, basados en huesos largos, se han creado con restos óseos de personas pertenecientes a grupos etnolingüísticos de diferentes regiones, algunos especializados para personas del continente asiático, otros del continente europeo y, algunos para personas de regiones del continente americano.

Este estudio se enfoca en aplicar un método experimental, este método experimental durante la investigación se denominará método de Rizo y Sánchez, el principal carácter es que para estimar la altura a partir de huesos largos, sin utilizar algún tipo de segregación entre grupos etnolingüísticos de diferentes continentes o de del mismo país, este método ha sido experimentado con muestras etnolingüísticas asiáticas, indígenas y mestizas de Guatemala y mexicanos en las que ha mostrado una alta efectividad en comparación con otros métodos como Telkkä, Trotter y Glesser y Depertuis y Hadden.

Se busca expandir la aplicación de este método, con muestras de restos óseos pertenecientes a otros grupos etnolingüísticos para continuar evaluando la funcionalidad de este método comparada con otros y demostrar la efectividad del mismo.

Presented by Megan Cruz & Karrie Toland

Over the last several years, Crime Analysts at the Richmond Police Department (RPD) have worked support positions in various kinds of special events, from planned, short term events to prolonged, spontaneous civil unrest. Through these experiences, the analysts have learned many lessons on what their role is within the Incident Command System (ICS) utilized by RPD and the City of Richmond. This presentation will highlight the different types of special events that RPD has encountered in the last six years, and how the role of Analysts assigned to the operation may vary. The Analysts have had to learn, adapt and develop their place in the operation structure.

The presentation will briefly overview the ICS structure, highlighting the Intelligence and Investigation section, where the Crime Analysts are assigned. This section’s activity can differ depending on the nature of the event. Pre-operational planning is one of the most important responsibilities of the analyst – where work may begin weeks and even months before an event. Planned events can have a differing necessity for preoperational intelligence – while events such as the 2015 UCI World Championships, or the yearly Richmond Marathon typically have little chance of criminal events occurring, heightened tension events such as protests or rallies around divisive topics (Gun Rights, Confederate Statues, etc.) have a higher likelihood for possible criminal events.

Richmond, similarly to several cities across the country, saw an extended period of Civil Unrest in the summer of 2020. For the Richmond Police Department, this turned into an extended operation with roughly half of the Department’s resources on the assignment, as well as coordinating with several other local, state, and federal agencies. The Analysts assigned to the operation had to adjust and adapt in the months of ‘trial-by-fire’. The presentation will outline the processes that were effective while shining a spotlight on several of the processes that in hindsight, could be improved. From having a set and searchable organization system for incoming information, to realizing when you need to recruit more help, to learning how to prepare for ‘spontaneous’ events, are among the things that the Analysts learned on-the-go in the height of nightly protests.

An analyst’s role in Special Event Operations is an important one; this presentation will review the roles that the analysts’ capacity within the ICS structure, how different events shape the responsibilities of that role, and the tips and tricks that the Analysts of the Richmond Police Department have learned working the range of events the city of Richmond has seen over the last six years.

Per the instructors, this session WAS NOT recorded.

In the hustle and bustle of a large police department, lower level sex crimes like indecent exposure can get overlooked. However, in some instances, these offenses can be a warning sign of escalation toward more serious offenses. In this presentation, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s sex crimes analyst will present how they have successfully increased focus on these offenders. She will explain her vetting process for events and offenders that are included and excluded. She will demonstrate the interactive dashboard of events, utilized by patrol and sex crimes investigators. Analytical reports on problem people will be shown and explained. She will present a few real cases to illustrate how the process has been successful.

Due to the large number of people participating in the virtual conference, we are unable to provide certificates to anyone who views the video after the fact.
