iCognative by Brainwave Science for Camden Shooting case


Two New Jersey police detectives are recovering after a gunman ambushed them while they were in their vehicle at a red-light Tuesday night, authorities said.

The officers were dressed in plain clothes and sat inside an unmarked vehicle on Mount Vernon Street. As they were waiting, at least one gunman approached them and fired anywhere between 10 and 25 rounds, said Camden County police chief J. Scott Thomson.

One detective was able to return fire but both officers were shot, it remains ambiguous if anyone else was shot in the incident. Thomson said his department was in communication with hospitals in the region.

The detectives were taken to Cooper University Hospital where they are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to survive.

Thomson said, “The number of rounds that were fired at close range and particularly through the windshield.” Police continue to search for the suspect or suspects involved in the “unprovoked” attack.

“Maybe they recognized they were police officers, and that’s the reason why they did it. Maybe they thought they were somebody else. We’ll find that out as the investigation unfolds,” Thomson said.

The shooting occurred on National Night Out, a nationwide event designed to assist local police and the communities in an effort to build better relationships.


The crime index of Camden is terrifying. Chances of becoming a victim of a brutal crime in the city are 1 in 47. Camden possesses a national reputation for its violent crime rates, which once ranked as the highest in the country. Morgan Quitno has ranked Camden as one of the top ten most dangerous cities in the United States. Camden crime diversifies from murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, auto theft and adding gun violence.

In the current scenario, the immediate challenge for law enforcement is to discover clues to assist them to identify and arrest the anonymous shooters. Law Enforcement agencies are under relentless pressure to perform better and it becomes more essential when the target of dangerous criminals are law enforcement officers. The conventional methods of investigation may not be sufficient to solve this complicated case. It is only imperative that enforcement agencies upgrade their methods and strategy in a war against such odious crimes.

Why iCognative?

A powerful step to solve such mysterious case is to gain accurate intelligence and identification of the anonymous shooter. The finest source of intelligence is Human Brain. Only one contemporary forensic technology that out-performs in terms of portability, accuracy, ease of usage and has proven track record can provide results and leads with an accuracy of 99.9%. Brainwave Science‘s iCognative Technology sets a new standard in security solutions that can support law enforcement in solving crimes, murders, terrorist attacks and virtually 80% of all civil and criminal investigations whenever some investigation has been done.

iCognative is a cost-effective, non-invasive modern forensic technology that has the extraordinary ability to distinguish between perpetrator and innocent by measuring patterns of a specific brain response. With the assistance of iCognative, a 45 minutes test conducted on all relevant suspects can give advantage to Law Enforcement gain valuable information and missing links that can swiftly lead to solving this case.

In order to conduct a iCognative test on suspect or person of interest relevant to the crime, a test case needs to be built using crime related known and confidential information known only to the perpetrator and investigators is called stimuli. It only takes 15 minutes to enter the stimuli into the iCognative system. Stimuli can be in the form of words, phrases or pictures depending on its availability. For example, in this case, investigators can use stimuli as: type of gun, location of shooting, gang connections, details about illegal weapons, link with previous crime along with other undisclosed information they have collected during an investigation as stimuli.

All this information will be flashed on a computer screen to the suspects while the iCognative system collects brain responses to each stimulus. These responses are analyzed by a click of button by the automated proprietary system to give final analysis with 99.9% accuracy. There are only two possible outcomes, information in question is present or absent in the brain of the suspect.

Once the iCognative test is conducted, law enforcement agents can identify all the crucial missing link/leads to solve this mysterious gun violence case. This technology promises its loyalty to law enforcement agencies who protect citizens around the globe, help deliver justice and keep their nations safe and protected.
