Study Group Meetings

Study Group Name:
Firearms

The Preparation and Use of Downloads for Bullet Recovery and the Potential Effect on Striae Production

An update from Heather Seubert on the FBI Laboratory’s integration of technology into casework. You may recall that Heather joined us for our October 20, 2015 meeting in Orange County and spoke about research aimed at assessing the feasibility of using “ballistic imaging” in casework. With a year having gone by, Heather will update us on 1) the FBI Laboratory’s integration of technology into casework and 2) report writing and testimony language.

Paul Mirra will have a discussion regarding the storing and archiving of digital comparison photomicrographs. Specifically, what do you do with your digital image files? Are they saved on a computer drive, are they saved in some sort of imaging database, do you burn them to a CD and include in the case file, etc.? Do you print them all out for inclusion in the case record, or only just a select few? Please be prepared to share what your lab does in this regard and bring a copy of any written policies you have.

A presentation by Bill Loznycky on tubular bullets.

A presentation by Bill Matty regarding GRC Database Searches.

Jim Carroll will give an update on the PCAST report and what is being done to respond to it.

It’ll be a pretty full day, so we’re planning to start right on time at 0930.
