In many agencies, viable cases cannot be worked due to limited personnel and timing of available data. This session will provide leaders with a look at the new game-changing tools from LeadsOnline that will automatically generate hits on cases from the moment they are reported and solve cold cases long after the file is put away. See case studies and examples from agencies who have already implemented LeadsOnline Real Time Crime at their department.

Catching Crooks with Connected Cars – Kipp Loving
Today's modern cars are connected via cellular modems embedded in vehicles. These vehicles are constantly registering with nearby cellular towers, providing an array of information. The communication is occurring even when the vehicle is parked and unattended for long periods of time, no different than your victim or suspect's personal mobile devices. Stop ignoring this evidence! This training will help the investigator identify a connected vehicle, secure the data using legal process, and determine the best way to present results for court.

The 32-year-old arrived in Council Bluffs for a job. She checked into a Best Western Motel, where she would stay until her husband arrived with the couple's mobile home. The next day, a motel employee found Rotatori dead in her room, the victim of a single stab wound. But despite exhaustive efforts, law enforcement was unable to figure out who killed Rotatori. Learn how investigators finally cracked the case.
