2010 Canadian Identification Society Conference

The 33rd annual CIS education conference was held at Casino Rama in Orillia, Ontario from September 20th to 23rd. Contingents from various law enforcement agencies across Canada and the United States attended this conference and trade show.

The conference included a number of informative speakers covering many different facets of forensic investigation. They covered such topics as Emerging Trends and Technological Advancements. 3D Technologies for Crime Scene Investigation and Forensic Video Analysis, to mention only a few. Some of these offered workshops where participants could get some hands on exposure.

Global GPR Services participated in the vendor services trade show with a booth focused on one of our primary services “Forensic Subsurface Locating”. We displayed some of the Ground Penetrating Radar equipment we use for non-destructive subsurface imaging to locate evidence and burial sites. Our GPR equipment manufacturer, Sensors & Software, also had a booth at the show displaying their latest ground penetrating radar equipment.

Our forensic locating specialist, Steve Watson, was on hand in the booth to answer questions and explain how our crime scene inspection methodology allows our GPR technicians to accurately locate suspected buried targets or confirm the area is clear of these targets. The key to our ability in properly assessing the likelihood of specific targets is in our methodology and experience analyzing the data collected by the GPR equipment.

Many of the attendees told us they look forward to this conference every year so they can get exposure to the newest technologies available in the field of forensic crime scene investigation. Next year’s conference is expected to be in Ottawa, Ontario.
