For centuries, police relied on interrogation, informants, and confessions to solve crimes. Contemporary law enforcement greatly expanded its ability to solve crimes by the adoption of advanced investigation techniques, forensic evidence, and investigation of the crime scene. Today, analysis of physical evidence, the search of databases, and reconstruction of the crime scene often can solve crimes.

Knowledge of forensic evidence is not only crucial in criminal investigations and prosecutions, but it is also vital in civil litigations, major man-made and natural disasters, and the investigation of global crimes. The success in solving cases is based upon a big database system integrated with six elements: the crime scene, physical evidence, witness, public information, data searching, and intelligence. This new investigative concept emphasizes teamwork, traditional detective work, public support, and advanced investigative skills (such as GPS positioning, cell phone tracking, video recording analysis, artificial intelligence, and data mining), and the ability to process a crime scene properly by recognizing, collecting, preserving and reconstructing all relevant physical evidence, plus, the analysis of forensic evidence.

Besides addressing the policy and practice of transnational crimes, Dr. Henry C. Lee will address examples of international cooperation and the utilization of the new forensic techniques, including: Image Recording & Enhancement, DNA genetic profiling, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Timeline Analysis, Records Tracking & Verification, Crime & Geographic Mapping, Cloud big database, artificial intelligence, Crime Scene Reconstruction, Investigation Information Theory and new Forensic Technology. Case examples, such as RI serial killer, wood-chipper murder and Chicago mass killer, etc will be used to illustrate the importance of the application of AI in a homicide investigation. Read about Dr. Henry Lee and some of his cases in issue 4 of CrimeConfidential on pg. 4.
