KEYNOTE: Devil in the River City: Lessons Learned from the Golden State Killer Investigation

10:00 - 12:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom III-V

Speaker:  Paige Kneeland

This presentation will provide a brief overview of the Golden State Killer series overlaid with Joseph DeAngleo’s life timeline. How did he evade identification for so long? Multiple lessons were learned during the Task Force Investigation from re-evaluating criminal behavior, to fingerprint databases, trace evidence and DNA advances. Many disconnects between investigators and technologies were uncovered, allowing investigators to learn methodologies which can now be applied to other violent crime cold case investigations. The most visible being the use of Investigative Genetic Genealogy, being questioned both legally and ethically, is now being applied to the most heinous, unsolvable crimes.

Using Statistical Models in Fingerprint Case Work

1:00 - 4:00 pm

Chamber IV

Speaker:  Glenn Langenburg

The concept of statistical models as applied to fingerprint evidence has existed for decades. However, there are still few options available to latent fingerprint examiners, but the community is steadily moving in this direction. In this workshop we will review the theory behind such models and in particular focus on models that propose a statistic known as the likelihood ratio (LR). We will see why this is an appropriate statistic to represent ACE-V conclusions. We will look at examples of one model from the University of Lausanne that uses a ‘score-based LR’ method. Finally, the attendee will learn about what steps are necessary to access, implement, and validate such a tool—a tool that could be used for casework, training, research, or conflict resolution.

2:00 pm (Tuesday 9/13)

Bridging Forensic Sciences and Management

3:15 - 4:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom III-V

Ph.D. results in terms of the development of a decision support index (ForATE index) for forensic identification managers that take into account various key factors to help the pre-acquisition decision-making process. Two indexes have already been developed (chemical fingermark development and forensic light sources), and we will investigate the possibility to adapt the concept in creating a ForATE-AFIS index allowing customers to assess AFIS systems.

Verification as Part of
ACE-V

Speaker:  Carey Hall

This workshop explores several approaches to verification: traditional ACE-V manual verification and some in an AFIS environment. Provided lectures will include contemporary research about verification efficacy and the risks of expert human performance. Participants will explore policies like; simple verification recorded on forms, 100% verification, and blind verification. Several sets of friction ridge exercises (tenprint and latent print) of varying difficulty will be provided. Attend this workshop to explore the benefits and risks in verification.

Navigating the Road to Redemption: Assessing the Impact of Clean Slate Initiatives on Justice Information Systems

10:45 - 12:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom III-V

Speaker:  David Roberts

The consequences of a criminal conviction extend well beyond the immediate sentence authorized by statute and imposed by a judge. A vast array of collateral consequences accompanies a criminal conviction and reduce, restrict, or exclude record subjects from the right to vote, to obtain employment or a professional license, access to public housing, and many other disabilities. Contemporary research has focused on what has been termed redemption, i.e., the point where an offender’s risk of committing crime has diminished to the same probability as the general population. As Blumstein and Nakamura have noted, “Although past wrongdoings are a useful sign of future trouble, this information has decreasing value over time because the risk of recidivism decreases with time clean.” States are increasingly enacting Clean Slate legislation, which advocates automatic clearance of criminal convictions and records for some crimes for persons who meet strict eligibility requirements (e.g., non-violent offenses, successful discharge of their sentence, completion of crime-free waiting periods). Pennsylvania, Utah, Michigan, Connecticut, Delaware, and Oklahoma are currently implementing or planning for Clean Slate programs. This presentation will focus on assessing the operational, technical, and policy challenges confronting states as they plan for and implement Clean Slate programs, and explore lessons learned.

DNA Identity Verification Solution

10:45 - 12:00 pm

Chamber I

Speaker:  Adrianna Bast

DNA sample identity verification is an important check and balance but can often be a pinch point for many agencies. After a historical mishap involving a serial killer and the implementation of DNA on Arrest, Wisconsin overhauled their process to improve efficiency and quality outcomes. While many states still rely on Latent Print Units to handle their samples, the WI State Crime Lab’s AFIS Unit utilizes their tenprint comparison expertise to process an average of 25,000 DNA Sample sheets per year. This presentation will review why and how we transitioned, what our process looks like and go over a custom workflow in our MBIS which allows for these prints to be searched through the AFIS with the matchers of a latent without having to create a latent case! Please note: this presentation will only be covering the fingerprint comparison portion of DNA Databank sample management.

Suitability for AFIS Search

2:00 - 3:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom II

Speaker:  Carey Hall

The question “What is your expert opinion?” may be a scary question in court, but in a training environment it will be fun to evaluate friction ridge impressions together. We will review some existing AFIS suitability policies and we will evaluate some friction ridge impressions together to decide whether they should be searched in AFIS. Bring your smart phone to vote (and judge others) during this lecture.

Validation of MBIS in ANAB lab environment

2:00 - 3:00 pm

Chamber I

Speaker:  Adrianna Bast

Part of bringing a new AFIS online in a quality driven Accredited Environment is Validating the method. Throughout the life of the system, after minor updates, standard upgrades, or major catastrophes additional verifications or performance checks are also required. This presentation will review how WIDOJ utilized their Staging and Production environments during their upgrade to MBIS 5 in the Cloud to evaluate the accuracy and acceptance of the software, to provide training to examiners and later competency testing, and to handle these same tasks throughout the life of the system. We will also discuss how all these tasks rely on something which is most easily overlooked: a good test data set, and how to develop your own.

Using the OSAC Conclusion Scale
(1.5 hours)

10:45 - 12:00 pm

Chamber I

Speaker:  Glenn Langenburg

This workshop will focus on how to use the 2018 proposed OSAC Expanded Conclusion Scale. We will explore the theory behind using the terms: identification, exclusion, inconclusive, and support for same/different sources. We will apply these conclusions, and a verbal likelihood ratio scale to express the weight of the evidence, to a series of case examples. Lastly, we will discuss what steps are necessary to implement these terms into a fingerprint unit.
