Dear PoliceOne Member,

From accessing recordings on smart devices to advances in DNA collection, technology continues to both challenge and enhance police investigations.

In our latest Investigations eNewsletter, we explore how a UK police agency is using CCTV footage in combination with 3D laser scanning technology, discuss dilemmas around the new age of data policing and smart devices, and share how researchers and investigators are gaining “interpretable” DNA off shell casings.

We also review how technology is enabling data sharing between agencies and improving case clearances by documenting associations between people, assets, locations and businesses.
