Law enforcement looking into new forensic technology
April 2, 2018 | Brainwave Science
A piece of technology that was once used in the food industry is now being used to help law enforcement to solve murder, rape and other unsolved cases across the country.
President and CEO of M-Vac Systems Jared Bradley just gave the Wilmington Police Department and the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office a demonstration of the new technology. The CEO stated that their technology can be used to solve crimes that are old.
“One case, for example, was a 39-year-old cold case in Salt Lake City,” Bradley said. “A young, 16-year-old girl was raped and murdered and she was gagged by a halter top.” The case is from 1977.
“Where the suspect had tied the knot behind her head, where he’d grabbed onto that halter top to tie the knot, that’s where they sampled with the m-vac and that’s where they got his profile,” Bradley said.
“When you get into porous items like rocks and bricks, cement and even a lot of fabric, the DNA will get down into those little areas and physically the swab just can’t get there,” Bradley said. “It’s been shown of collecting up to 200 times more DNA.”
In today’s world, law enforcement faces a lot of daily challenges in solving a variety of cases. With the new means of communication and technologies, perpetrators keep outpacing the police.
Law enforcement faces difficulties in finding and securing evidence to verify a victim, witness, or suspect’s testimony. Handling false accounts, tips, manipulated case facts are normative practices in the investigation. Accurately corroborating evidence and testimony of suspects or victims require an exorbitant amount of time and resources, a luxury that many law enforcement agencies do not have. Effective investigation and prosecution of criminal activities require proactive evidence collection and verification methods.
M-Vac Systems, although being extremely helpful for law enforcement, can only be used to gain DNA intelligence. In a lot of cases, the police can’t find any DNA at the crime scene. This makes the technology only partially valuable, in cases where there is DNA evidence.
With all this in mind, a new strategy is necessary to give law enforcement a better advantage in fighting crime.
Did you ever imagine that an innovative technology can gain valuable intelligence directly from the human brain? With iCognative only by Brainwave Science, all this is now possible. This new technology is a modern, unprecedented security solution that eliminates human error and intervention and gives 99% accurate results.
With the use of iCognative, law enforcement can distinguish between innocents and perpetrators and collect valuable information.
The technology could have solved the case of the 16-year-old girl, even after so much time. In order to submit a suspect to the test, a case needs to be built. As a process of conducting a test on suspects some significant items or information in the form of text or pictures from the crime has to be entered into the iCognative system, which is known only to perpetrator and investigators. That information in this crime may be such as date of the crime, place of the crime, where the suspect had tied the knot behind her head, where he’d grabbed onto that halter top to tie the knot, the halter knot itself. And some more additional confidential information that known to investigators about the crime but is not known to public domain can be entered into the system as a stimuli. iCognative system can gain access to information stored in the suspect’s brain by showing the loaded stimuli and identify which suspect/suspects have participated or helped in the crime within a less than one hour of testing.
With iCognative the case could have been solved sooner and the rapist caught sooner. This modern security system is applicable in a variety of security disciplines and is of great value in keeping citizens and national borders safe.
