IDEMIA has been in the enrollment services business since 1994. Over that time, there have been significant technology advancements, both in overall information technology as well as in livescan technology. One thing that has not changed is IDEMIA’s position as the overwhelming market leader. This is due to our ongoing ability to our employees and our leadership. We have improved the technology associated with the enrollment process but have also developed very qualified teams to oversee all components of a successful applicant enrollment experience. This presentation will discuss the technology evolution along with the importance of each operational and support team.

Disaster Victim Identification, or DVI, is the method used to identify victims of mass casualty incidents, either man-made or natural. A major disaster – such as an earthquake or terrorist attack – may result in the death of nationals from many different countries and damage or destroy a country’s emergency-response infrastructure. A coordinated international effort can speed up the recovery and identification of victims, enabling families to begin the healing process and societies to rebuild. In the event of a terrorist incident, DVI can also help to identify possible attackers. INTERPOL’s DVI activities are supported by a Working Group, made up of forensic and police experts who meet twice a year to discuss improvements to DVI procedures and standards. The Working Group publishes the Guide to Disaster Victim Identification which is the unique globally accepted standard for DVI protocols. First produced in 1984, it is updated every five years.

The morning of April 19, 1995, was a typical Wednesday morning until a tremendous explosion rocked downtown Oklahoma City. Within minutes, FBI Special Agent Bomb Technician Barry Black was on scene with hundreds of first responders. The date was significant; just two years before Mr. Black had been deployed as a sniper at the Brach Davidian compound and witnessed flames, set from inside, engulf the complex. The OKBOMB investigation was Mr. Black’s focus from that day, through the trial and subsequent execution of Timothy McVeigh. We will discuss the case that brought justice to McVeigh and Terry Nichols.

Latent Print Units are evolving in their use of AFIS to increase accuracy and efficiency. For many years, latent print examiners only used AFIS to search large databases for unknown persons. Case AFIS searches a small set of individuals associated with the case to more quickly find correspondence or the lack of correspondence. This can eliminate hours of manually searching for a match, especially when the location and orientation of a latent print is unclear. TX DPS has recently completed a validation of stand-alone Case AFIS laptops and approved them for use in casework. The lecture will share validation results and discuss examiners’ initial impressions of IDEMIA technology.

Twenty years ago, when I started working for my state police force in Australia the idea of “Lights-Out Latents” was merely a pipe dream. Written off as an unobtainable goal that would never happen. The ask was simple: Why can’t we take a photo of a fingerprint at a crime scene with a scale and get a priority identification before the offender has made good their escape, disposed of evidence, covered their tracks, and left the state? Have you ever solved a homicide case within hours of the event occurring while detectives are still on scene? Upload your image, our IDEMIA MBIS will detect the ruler and calibrate, automatically box up the latents, create a case folder in MBIS, auto encode and search each latent, and present the search candidate lists to your examiners to be manually verified on your homepage. Case solved. IDEMIA has that technology and has implemented it in countries across the world. This certificate class demonstrates latent automation tools with the potential to reduce backlogs from years to days.

For over a decade, the latent print field has seen publications, presentations, and research into latent print likelihood ratio models. However, there has been no model widely available for an agency to test or use in their own casework using their own tenprint database as the background dataset. An AFIS-based Likelihood Ratio model using Approximate Bayesian Computation is now being tested and will soon be available as an optional feature of an AFIS upgrade. This lecture will discuss the statistical basis for this system, use-cases for the technology, and results of prototype testing.

The inked fingerprint card with ten rolled impressions and ten flat impressions is quickly heading towards extinction. When capturing known prints for background checks or for other non-arrest purposes, there is increased interest in making the process simpler and easier, and this has led agencies to consider only capturing the flat impressions or for some forward-looking ones, using a contactless device in this scenario. But if agencies make this change, how will it affect the accuracy of latent print searches? This session debates these points and presents research into the accuracy of latent prints searched against these different types of known print images.
