NIJ released a solicitation for proposals from research organizations partnered with state, local, or tribal criminal justice agencies for research related to the use of video cameras in police work. Specifically, NIJ is looking for ideas that identify, realize, and evaluate the use of video cameras and advanced video analysis software that helps control and prevent crime.

NIJ will be most interested in receiving proposals that involve integrating video technology into policing strategies, particularly those that use quantitative data analysis methods. NIJ will also entertain proposals dealing with courts and correctional environments.

Court Case Update

FINGERPRINT EVIDENCE went through a nearly three-year ordeal in the New Hampshire court system, but eventually emerged unscathed. On April 4, 2008, the New Hampshire Supreme Court unanimously reversed the decision of a lower court to exclude expert testimony regarding fingerprint evidence in the case of The State of New Hampshire v. Richard Langill. The case has been remanded back to the Rockingham County Superior Court.
