Advancements in DNA have gone beyond just matching profiles of unknown samples to knowns. Now actually utilizing the genome to predict physical traits and appearance takes DNA analysis to another level. Within CrimePad, using predictive images of suspects or persons of interest to share with the entire investigative team and the entire department can create a big break in a case.
Visionations has been a pioneer in this arena here in the US. Using CrimePad to interface with AFIS systems in the field to generate possible leads while the scene is still being processed has been a vision for a while. Visionations is currently exploring this opportunity with all the major AFIS vendors in the US.
As a society, we have barely scratched the possibilities of Augmented Reality. Imagine a future where your agency can use smartphone devices or tablets to see all the overlays that other personnel have contributed or analyzed in a Crime Scene. It’s closer than you think!
Many agencies are adopting unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to enhance their crime scene and traffic accident documentation. This powerful tool can be used not only to document but to aid in the search for evidence over large outdoor areas. All data can be stored and shared in real time within CrimePad.
