The L-Tron team has returned from a successful New England Division International Association for Identification (IAI) Conference, held outside of Boston, MA. The conference, which was geared toward New England crime scene investigators, identification specialists, forensic scientists, and students took place from December 4-7, 2022. L-Tron’s Julianne Pangal and Ben Peay had the opportunity to network with conference participants and share the OSCR360 system with attendees.
A highlight of this year’s conference was an exciting keynote presentation by ADA Beth Farris, Investigator Noah Pack, and Investigator Mark Pfau, all with the Pitt County DA/Sheriff’s office. Their presentation focused on the successful prosecution of a 27-year-old cold case, in which a young woman went missing. Cold case investigation was a common theme throughout the conference, along with presentations on evidence collection and analysis and crime scene photography.
The patented OSCR360 system is a part of every phase of case investigation. Upon arrival on-scene, investigators capture 360-degree images of a crime or crash scene. Then, OSCR360 is utilized for digital evidence documentation, organization, and courtroom presentation. The presentation software allows users to provide a visual walkthrough of the scene, and use points of interest to add context to the scene and connect related evidence. OSCR360 also plays an active role in incident pre-planning by creating comprehensive virtual tours of schools and public spaces that can later be used for law enforcement training.
L-Tron’s Pangal noted that OSCR was well-received at the conference. She found it great to catch up with several current OSCR360 customers from the New England region, and meet with some new agencies interested in OSCR.
“One Officer at the conference told us a story about how their photographer was taking scene overalls. The photographer took one photograph low, another photograph high, and completely missed the middle. In retrospect, she wished OSCR360 had been available to her department to avoid this error.”Julianne Pangal, L-Tron Customer Engagement
