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

10:00 - 12:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom II-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.

1:00 pm (Tuesday 9/13)

Verification as Part of ACE-V

1:00 - 4:00 pm

Chamber I & III

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.

CERTIFICATE CLASS
Using Statistical Models in Latent Fingerprint Casework

1:00 - 4:00 pm

Chamber II & 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)

Face Recognition Systems Interoperability in Europe

3:15 - 4:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom II-V

Speaker:  John Riemen

The European Commission has announced their plans for the further development of the biometric interoperability for the 27 EU member states, the so called PRUM 2.0 regulation. Most significant is the proposal, on advise of an EU expert group, to connect all the national Facial Recognition systems with databases of suspects and convicts of the member states to each other. John Riemen is member of the EU expert group and will talk about the background of the proposal. The aim of the proposal is to be able to search with a probe of a criminal investigation through all the connected FR systems and databases. This is already successful for fingerprints with the EU PRUM fingerprint network.

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

10:45 - 12:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom II-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 Databank Sample Identity Verification Solutions 

10:45 - 12:00 pm

Napoleon

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.

1:00 pm (Wednesday 9/14)

Rapid DNA Deployment:
Lessons Learned

1:00 - 2:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom II-V

Speaker:  Angela Delatte

In 2017, Congress passed the Rapid DNA Act of 2017, and in 2019 Louisiana joined 4 states and the FBI in testing Rapid DNA integration in booking. Louisiana became the first state in the nation to receive Authority to Operate (ATO) designation for Rapid DNA Booking Agency Operations from the FBI in April of 2022. The Rapid DNA System is a fully automated system capable of producing a CODIS-acceptable DNA profile from an arrestee buccal swab without human intervention in under 2 hours. In the booking environment, these DNA profiles can be automatically enrolled and searched in CODIS while the arrestee is still in custody. Over the last 3 years, beginning with participation in the FBI’s Rapid DNA Pilot and culminating with the first Rapid arrestee sample enrolled into CODIS, LSPCL endured the unpredictability of developing new systems and proposes to share recommendations for other agencies.

Facial Recognition:
Competing Narratives

2:00 - 3:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom II-V

Dean Kueter from BBM and Joseph Courtesis, retired commander from the NYPD RTCC will discuss the controversy surrounding the use of FRT in Law Enforcement. The competing narratives have created political pressure to ban FRT and it has caused some in law enforcement to shy away from this valuable investigative tool. The nay-sayers label the technology as unreliable and biased, whereas law enforcement promotes FRT as an accurate and reliable tool that contributes to an already existing image identification process. Dean and Joe will address these narratives, discuss the future FRT, and provide direction on where to go for policy guidance.

AFIS Suitability

2:00 - 3:00 pm

Lafitte/Conti

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 an Accredited Lab Environment 

2:00 - 3:00 pm

Napoleon

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.

Responsible Limits on Facial Recognition: the Law Enforcement Investigations Use Case

11:30 - 12:00 pm

Roosevelt Ballroom II-V

Speaker:  Odhran McCarthy

Over the course of almost two years, the World Economic Forum, in partnership with the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics of the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), and the Netherlands police, co-developed a White Paper containing a comprehensive policy response to the risks associated with facial recognition technology in the context of law enforcement. With the support of 6 law enforcement agencies in 5 countries, the framework was subsequently tested, validated and refined over a three-month pilot period. The framework is intended to serve as a unique reference to law enforcement all across the globe seeking to tap into the potential of facial recognition technology for their work.

Best Digital Imaging Practices for Maximizing AFIS Search Results

3:50 - 4:50 pm

Chamber I & III

Analyzing, comparing, and evaluating latent impressions – both fingerprints and palm prints –depends upon having images in which the friction ridge detail is sufficiently clear enough to reach an accurate, reliable conclusion. Understanding digital imaging concepts and best practices are crucial for not only visualizing (analyzing and comparing) ridge detail, but it is equally important for maximizing AFIS search results. This is especially important when dealing with difficult (“complex”) latent impressions as well as when exporting digital images for comparison purposes today as well as in the future (i.e., when using archived images of latent prints that are still in the unsolved latent database).
