On September 11, 2019 at 2PM ET, the Strategies for Policing Innovation (SPI) will present a webinar on “Data-Driven Decisionmaking". This online, interactive, event aims at engaging participants in a focused discussion on how to institutionalize the use of data in a law enforcement agency. The improved use of data and intelligence is a key principle of the SPI initiative, and SPI maintains a commitment to increasing the capacity of law enforcement agencies to use data and intelligence in decisionmaking.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) laboratory at the National Center for Environmental Health is collaborating with public, private, and academic laboratories to respond to the opioid overdose epidemic. Some states are leveraging the Laboratory Response Network for Chemical Threats (LRN-C) infrastructure to respond to the epidemic. The webinar will cover performance of screening immunoassays, with highlights on cross-reactivity gaps in contrast to fentanyl chemical structure. Traceable Opioid Material* Kits (TOM Kits*), developed by CDC, will be described.
In Brady v. Maryland, United States v. Giglio, and a series of subsequent cases, the U.S. Supreme Court placed affirmative duties on prosecutors, and later law enforcement, to disclose exculpatory information to criminal defense counsel. In this webinar, the presenter will explore the history and evolution of these cases to get to the newest issue being litigated in courts throughout the country: the impact of disciplinary actions against public employees and the government’s Brady/Giglio obligations.

Within the law enforcement and digital forensics communities, people will say, “What do they expect? It’s part of the job – they should be able to handle it.” However, technology has changed the type of evidence that is now processed in criminal cases, with more audio, video, and image evidence of the actual crime itself than ever before. In addition, almost every criminal investigation involves more than one form of digital evidence.
Jurisdictions across the country face challenges in developing case plans that balance criminogenic and behavioral health needs.
