In this week’s edition we have news of the NCA has appealed for more information after more than 1,500 victims came forward as part of Operation Stovewood and Chief Constable Simon Bailey explores the lessons learnt in the Barry Bennell case. There is lots more news and features include a look into software that allows offenders to add faces to videos and find new ways to commit crimes, Joy Buolamwini discusses racial bias within facial recognition software, Chief Executive of the College of Policing Mike Cunningham discusses the challenges the professional body has to be relevant to the daily lives of practitioners, Andrew Steel explains the Supreme Court’s decision in Robinson vs Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police, the discovery that certain body parts die at different stages and could help verify time of death and Detective Inspector Mike Newman explains how a randomised control trial was vital to successful reforms in detective recruitment, training and retention.
The discovery that certain parts of the body die at different stages could make it easier to verify the time of death, if circumstances prove beneficial.
