    Show notes:

    Knott Laboratory LLC is a forensic engineering and animation firm, and has created Digital Media Forensics; a new division to assist law enforcement with in-depth analysis of digital evidence.
     

    What Digital Media Forensics can do for law enforcement:
    Recreate crime scenes in 3D
    Discover facts in a case and eliminate issues
    Create transparency
    Present the case clearly to a jury.

     
    For example, Digital Media Forensics can use video and audio evidence from: 
    ·        Body worn cameras 
    ·        Surveillance cameras 
    ·        Patrol dashboard cameras 
    ·        Cell phones 
    ·        Video doorbells 
    ·        Traffic cameras 
    ·        Photographs from the scene 
    ·        Drone footage 
     
    And merge this evidence with a Point Cloud to find key factors, such as: 
    ·        Positions of people, vehicles, and objects 
    ·        Second-by-second timeline of events 
    ·        Speed, pitch, yaw, roll, and angles of objects 
    ·        Locations of evidence 
    ·        Points of rest 
     
    “Digital analysis at this level is a new necessity for law enforcement,” said Stanley Stoll, CEO/Principal Engineer at Knott Laboratory. “We see cases scrutinized in the media. Every detail in our work is scientifically accurate, providing that needed transparency, while clearly presenting the facts of the case.” 
     
    In addition to video analysis, Knott Laboratory’s Digital Media Forensics experts can use Motion Capture, Real-Time Simulation, Interactive Visualizations, and Virtual Reality to create custom case presentations. 
     

    Video Evidence is objective, or is it?
    The viewer is not objective
    Much of the important evidence is in the data you don’t see
    How do you help remove the “perspective” of the viewer?

    How can agencies respond to high visibility incidents better? 
    How long does it take so get at least a baseline understanding of what happened once you have all the video?
    How do agencies begin working with Knott Labs?
    Is this the new norm? Will we see OIS go through a review process using this tech without exception at some point in the future?

Awesome

I really wanted to write a great review because there seemed to be some really negative ones, which I feel are totally undeserved. This podcast is so great. They really dive into the world of police and life advice. As someone who went to college for criminal justice, I know politics and police are very intertwined and I think this podcast does a great blend. I’m learning a lot, not just about the mindset of police, but how much they sacrifice! Thank you for an amazing podcast!

Such A Great Show!

I absolutely love this podcast. I am a 12 year old aspiring Police Officer and I enjoy it. Yes, there my be some swearing, but Terence tells you about it. I love the episodes that follow cases such as the “Furgison”Episode and the “Into the Cosmos” episodes. I would highly recommend to anyone in or interested in law enforcement.
