Representatives fromCapita (Neil Chivers), Coban (David Hinojosa) and PIPS Technology (Louis Wershaw, not in photo) were present along with Brett Vernon, Business Development Manager.
Capita’s Evidence Works digital evidence management platform and interview room recording system and their 911eye real-time video situational awareness system were well received. Also generating a lot of interest was the Coban FOCUS H1 artificial intelligence In-Car Video system. Plus PIPS demonstrated their new Multi-Lane ALPR camera, the TS-500.

Belleville Police Service – Pilots EvidenceWorks Technology

Deputy Police Chief Mike Callaghan

The Belleville Police Service is on the cusp of piloting some high-end technology for its officers. Key components of this technology— services of EvidenceWorks, a digital evidence management system—are being provided by PS&S. The purchase of EvidenceWorks services by the Belleville Police Service is exciting because it speaks to the force’s forward-looking approach to policing, and it represents the first sale by PS&S of the technology in Canada. Belleville Police Service Pilots EvidenceWorks Technology

As Belleville Police Service’s Systems Network Administrator Joe Myderwyk notes, “UK-based EvidenceWorks offers services ranging from standalone interview recording units to a fully networked, multi-media digital evidence management solution encompassing interviews, CCTV, body worn video, crime scene forensic imagery and public provision media.” The Belleville Police Service will be integrating EvidenceWorks services with Samsung’s “Connected Officer” technology, in which an officer’s Samsung cell phone provides the basis of a computer system that can dock in the police vehicle, but also go with the officer wherever he or she goes outside of the car, be it on the beat, to a crime scene or back to the station

Deputy Police Chief Mike Callaghan said the EvidenceWorks system will assist in evidence gathering and management, as well as disclosure to the courts. An overhaul of the service’s interview-room recording equipment with EvidenceWorks technology will take place in July, and will be followed by September with the piloting of some of Samsung’s smart phone technology in vehicles. Equipment purchases subsequent to the piloting will go through the budgeting process.Deputy Police Chief Mike Callaghan says the technology will make investigations safer, faster and easier to share between departments, which will well serve residents of Belleville and beyond. PS&S is pleased to have introduced EvidenceWorks to the Belleville Police Service and looks forward to assisting the force in its broader implementation in the months and years ahead. Belleville Police Service Pilots EvidenceWorks Technology

(Photo: David Foot / Quinte News)The Belleville Police Service is looking at making some major investments in technology to support frontline officers and investigations.The Police Services Board was briefed Tuesday on EvidenceWorks and Samsung “Connected Officer” technology, which can link together various peices of an investigation like video evidence, suspect interviews and more.It can also give officers access to things like criminal records and other systems, through the touch of a smartphone.Deputy Police Chief Mike Callaghan says the technology will make investigations safer, faster and easier to share between departments.

Callahan says if they move forward to the expanded phases, the system would be a cost-effective way to allow officers to access information and communicate without installing laptops in cars, which the BPS does not currently have.

The force is installing the interview room technology first and has a pilot project scheduled for the in-car technology in the early fall.
Any other equipment purchases would still have to go through the budget process.

Portable Raman Spectroscopy in Forensics : Explosive Residues and Inflammable Liquids

Portable Raman Spectroscopy Forensics

The transition from traditional chemical tests to modern analytical techniques is the current state in many forensic laboratories. Particularly, spectroscopic techniques are showing an increase in their potential applications in the forensic field due to the novel instrumentation which is being developed to be faster, more sensitive, more compact and portable and more flexible to analyse a wider variety of substances. In addition, spectral libraries containing a larger number of spectra for a variety of compounds are being created, facilitating this method of identification of samples under suspicion. Portable Raman spectroscopy is one of these novel spectroscopic techniques. The suitability and potential of Raman spectroscopy in forensics is widely known by forensic specialists who use it in the laboratory to identify a wide variety of compounds including explosives, drugs, paints, textile fibers and inks [5]. However, the use of laboratory-grade Raman outside the laboratory, such as for in-situ analysis at a crime scene, was something thought possible only in forensic-fiction until just a few years ago. Fortunately, modern portable Raman spectrometers are commercially available, and their instrumental features are comparable to Raman lab- spectrometers.

Workshop

“Building Resilience by Not ‘Shoulding’ on Yourself”

The way we think about situations and the stories we tell ourselves about them impact our mood, self-confidence, work effectiveness, and relationships.

This workshop, presented by Dr. Stephanie M. Conn, First Responder Psychology, Licensed Psychologist/Author, addresses the oftentimes unconscious and maladaptive manners of thinking and feeling that undermine our resilience. These thoughts may be related to critical incidents such as inappropriate trauma-related guilt. These maladaptive ways of thinking also occur, worsening daily stressors encountered on and off the job.

Strategies for becoming aware of and intentionally countering these resilience thieves are offered to promote resilience during adversities, large and small.

What you will learn:
– Attendees will identify thinking and language patterns that hinder resilience
– Attendees will identify more adaptive, resilience-promoting manners of thinking
