Modern Forensic Technology – RUVIS

The Reflected Ultraviolet Imaging System (RUVIS) was first made available to law enforcement agencies more than a decade ago and is now in use throughout the U.S.A. by Federal, state and municipal agencies, and it has become a valuable aid to governments around the world. RUVIS derives its uniqueness from the fact that this handheld device permits investigators to actually see latent fingerprints on nonporous surfaces BEFORE any attempt is made to develop them using Read more about Modern Forensic Technology – RUVIS[…]

In our body, 70% of the blood is present in the hemoglobin present in the red blood cell, in the protein of 4% of the muscle mass in myoglobin, 25% Read more about Facts about human blood[…]

FORENSIC PHOTOGRAPHY

Forensic photography, also referred to as crime scene photography, is an activity that records the initial appearance of the crime scene and physical evidence, in order to provide a permanent record for the courts. it is the job of the forensic photographer to produce accurate, detailed photographs that faithfully record the location and evidence of crime and accident scenes as clearly and as objectively as possible. Forensic photographers produce detailed recordings of all the available Read more about FORENSIC PHOTOGRAPHY[…]

APPLICATIONS OF 3D LASER SCANNERS

A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. Construction industry and civil engineering. Robotic control: e.g. a laser scanner may function as the “eye” of a robot. As-built drawings of bridges, industrial plants, and monuments Documentation of historical sites Site modelling and lay outing Quality control Read more about APPLICATIONS OF 3D LASER SCANNERS[…]

DNA SOLVES 1979 COLD MURDER CASE

NEWS FROM WILMINGTON, USA. A Jacksonville man is to be sentenced Aug. 25 after pleading guilty to second degree murder in the 1979 murder of Karen Johnson, a cold case that the State Bureau of Investigation recently reopened using new forensic technology. Special Investigator Tony Cummings, a retired SBI homicide agent, was able to connect Roger Gene Pollard of Virginia Beach to the murder of Johnson through DNA evidence. “Up until the late ’80s, we Read more about DNA SOLVES 1979 COLD MURDER CASE[…]

Use of 3D LASER SCANNERS IN INVESTIGATIONS.

A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. The 3D Scanners are being used for  manufacturing of different products as well  as being used by different agencies like fire department, metrology department, etc. These are basically used for constructions and productions because of their precision measurement Read more about Use of 3D LASER SCANNERS IN INVESTIGATIONS.[…]

Law enforcement agencies and 3D Scanners.

​3D scanning can now help solve crimes. Police departments are now using 3D scanning software to create three-dimensional images of crime scenes and evidence. A 3D printer scanner can create casts of footprints and fingerprints, 3D models of car crashes and industrial accidents, and help with facial reconstruction and identification that can help ID victims. Some departments are even using images created by these scanners in court to convict criminals. Currently, investigating officers must use Read more about Law enforcement agencies and 3D Scanners.[…]

3-D Crime Scene Reconstruction in 3 Steps

              Scan. Analyze. Deliver. Crime scene reconstruction can be accomplished in a variety of ways. In some cases, data compiled at the scene, such as location of evidence and blood spatter interpretation, as well as the possible movements and final resting place of the body is later inserted into a computer to provide three-dimensional videos that illustrate what may have happened at the scene. Any crime scene may be Read more about 3-D Crime Scene Reconstruction in 3 Steps[…]

Documentation of crime scene

Documentation of crime scene  One of the most important aspects of any crime scene investigation is properly documenting the crime scene. This documentation provides a record of the evidence found at the scene and the observations of the scene itself at the time it was discovered. A complete and accurate record of the scene is essential for investigating the crime and for presenting the case when it goes to court. Documenting the scene begins with Read more about Documentation of crime scene[…]
