Please join the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) and the Denver (CO) Police Department for the webinar, “Forensic-Led Policing in Denver” on Thursday, October 19 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET. All interested criminal justice professionals are encouraged to participate.
This webinar will provide the criminal justice community with information about the Denver Crime Lab, including how their customer-focused philosophy has helped solve crime. Presenters will discuss the concept of real-time forensics, including how databases such as the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN), the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), and the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) have impacted their work, and will address some of the challenges in running the lab such as backlog reduction efforts and overcoming workflow issues. Additionally, the Crime Gun Intelligence Center concept founded in Denver will be discussed in terms of real-time investigative support.
