What is a Cold Case and How are They Solved?

When people hear the term “cold case,” most think about an old, unsolved murder. While this definition is not incorrect, the idea that the term “cold case” only pertains to a murder is inaccurate. Seasoned investigator Jason Moran will discuss how to define and categorize cold cases, as well as provide key considerations and strategies for investigators handling cold cases to increase solvability.

This webinar is intended for police departments seeking to increase their understanding of cold case investigations and improve cold case investigative outcomes.

Join the Justice Clearinghouse for the webinar “Intelligence-Driven Strategies: Creating an Integrated Approach for Justice Agencies” on Thursday, November 15 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET. During the webinar, participants will learn about intelligence-driven strategies that help enhance security and reduce crime.

The webinar session will address the following key questions:

FY 2018 Justice Reinvestment Initiative: Funding Opportunities for State, Local, and Tribal Agencies and TTA Providers

This webinar will introduce the fiscal year 2018 funding opportunities offered through two solicitations, including a new grant program that provides direct assistance for state, local, and tribal justice agencies and jurisdictions to develop, implement, and test data-driven and evidence-based responses to high-cost drivers of crime and other compelling public safety challenges. The presenters will also discuss the related funding opportunity available to training and technical assistance providers.

Intelligence-Driven Strategies: Creating an Integrated Approach for Justice Agencies

In this webinar, justice practitioners will gain a better understanding of how security is enhanced and how crime is reduced through intelligence-driven strategies. Whether a narcotics detective, gang intelligence officer, jail administrator, or patrol deputy, attendees will learn some of the modern-day practical applications that harness the power from knowledge produced by the convergence of the latest intelligence methodologies and technologies.

This session will answer the following key questions:

Learning from Error in Criminal Justice: A Sentinel Events Approach

In criminal justice, a “sentinel event” is a bad outcome that might include a death in custody, routine police encounter that escalates to violence, mishandling of evidence, wrongful conviction, or “near miss,” in which a negative event is narrowly avoided. Too often, the criminal justice system fails to learn from these bad outcomes. Drawing inspiration from aviation, medicine, and other high-risk fields, the Sentinel Events Initiative (SEI) takes an alternative approach.

Aerial Data: Introduction to Drone Investigations (Webinar)

With applications from aerial photography to racing to delivery services, drones are becoming more and more popular in both commercial and recreational spaces. Criminal use of drones is also increasing, and drone forensics is quickly becoming an important subfield of digital forensics. This presentation introduces the history of drones and the ways they are commonly used, both legitimately and in relation to a crime, and focuses on the ways law enforcement can gather and analyze evidence involving drones.

Law Enforcement Cyber Center: A Valuable Resource for Investigators

The Law Enforcement Cyber Center (LECC) was developed to enhance the awareness, expand the education, and build the capacity of justice and public safety agencies to prevent, investigate, prosecute, and respond to cyber threats and cyber crimes. It is intended to be a national resource for law enforcement and related justice and public safety entities. During the webinar, participants will review the website and learn about the many valuable resources that can be utilized.

This presentation introduces the history of drones and the ways they are commonly used, both legitimately and in relation to a crime, and focuses on the ways law enforcement can gather and analyze evidence involving drones. Topics include gathering evidence both internal and external to the drone, as well as methods for manually processing flight logs and displaying data in Google Earth.
