DNA sample collector
GlobalOptions Group announces the launch of the Bode Crime Scene Collector. Collecting and processing DNA samples can help to apprehend and prosecute criminals. Most investigations require that a large number of samples be taken at crime scenes and be manipulated in various ways to collect and package the evidence. In order to reduce the possibility of contaminating the DNA evidence, the collection process must be simple to perform. The Bode Crime Scene Collector is prelabeled and designed for easy packaging to reduce the number of manipulations performed and to minimize the chances of evidence contamination. The Bode Crime Scene Collector also allows for automated processing so that swabs are handled more efficiently.

Photo enforcement camera
Gatsometer introduces the GS-11 camera, developed specifically for a range of traffic enforcement applications. The camera’s high dynamic range (12 bits) enables it to capture both shadow detail and highlight detail at the same time. The camera provides both enforcement and automatic number plate recognition, while its resolution (11 megapixels) ensures that high-quality images can be captured across up to four lanes of traffic. A burst rate of four images per second ensures that all offending vehicles are captured, even in high-density traffic.

Simply pulling the ripcord inflates the device, and the user can then paddle out to the victim.
