Website Maintenance and Upgrade

Knowing that many of you depend on our website to make your purchases and receive new product information, we wanted to let you know about two events in the works.

First, tonight we will be performing routine website maintenance between 6:00 and 11:00 pm.  The website may be offline for a short time during those hours, thirty minutes at the most, so please check back if it isn’t online when you are.

Second, we are so excited to be preparing a new website for you.  Coming in 2017, our new website will provide additional features to make our site even easier to use.  As we get closer to launching that site, we’ll let you know what to expect.

Thanks for being with us during this very successful year.  We appreciate you very much!

Remembering Pearl Harbor

We are remembering the attack on Pearl Harbor today.  Such a tragic loss of life, both on that day and in the following war.  Something to take note of, however, is the relationship all of these countries now have with each other.  I have personally seen veterans welcoming former adversaries with hugs and handshakes.  That is truly the mark of “the greatest generation”.

You’ve heard the saying, “Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.”  We encourage you to take a look at the memories gathered by the Library of Congress, here: https://www.loc.gov/item/today-in-history/december-07.  You’ll find pictures, recording, cartoons, and much more.

We hope that a war of this magnitude will never occur again, and we are extremely grateful to the men and women who fought and worked so hard to defeat evil.

Happy Thanksgiving!

As we sit down to our turkey dinners, we want to thank those who remain on the job, patrolling the streets, staffing the hospitals, fighting the fires, and undertaking all of those tasks that don’t always get the applause (you know who you are!).  Your actions allow us to enjoy the day in peace and safety, and we are grateful for your sacrifice.  Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you from everyone at Tri-Tech Forensics!

Tri-Tech Forensics, a forensics market leader, is proud to have represented North Carolina at Milipol Qatar 2016, an international exhibition dedicated to homeland security.

Milipol Qatar takes place every two years in Doha and features the latest products and ideas designed to benefit a wide range of security agencies, both public and private. This year’s exhibition was Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center.

With the cooperation of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, Tri-Tech Forensics was the only company representing the state in the exhibition’s North American Pavilion.

“It was exciting to represent the state of North Carolina and start a relationship with the Economic Development Partnership,” said Jim Seidel, Tri-Tech Forensics CEO. “Our experience at the show and with the EDP was nothing but positive.”

Milipol Qatar afforded law enforcement representatives worldwide the opportunity to see Tri-Tech Forensics’ ever-expanding digital forensics solutions and training opportunities up close.

“Going to Qatar was another great step in expanding our role as the exclusive training partner of the International Association for Identification and bringing more of our forensic training courses to agencies around the globe,” Seidel said.

Milipol Qatar 2016 hosted more than 220 exhibitors from 35 countries.

Honoring Forensic Nurses

nurses week 2016When the medical and legal fields intersect, forensic nurses are there.  Our own company began when our founder saw the need for a more efficient, connected, and verifiable method for evidence collection in hospitals.  Our collection kits are now used by forensic nurses around the world, and we appreciate the role they play in evidence collection as well as in providing comfort and care for their patients.

This special week has been set aside to recognize the extraordinary work of nurses who practice in this unique nursing specialty. Forensic nurses specialize in caring for patients who have experienced violence and trauma. As the fastest growing nursing specialty, forensic nursing serves to ensure that patients who are affected by violence receive expert, compassionate, and comprehensive care.

Said Joe Biden, Vice President of the United States, “Forensic nurses play an integral role in bridging the gap between law and medicine.  They should be in each and every emergency room.”

At Tri-Tech Forensics, we salute the women and men in this field.  Please take a moment to learn more about forensic nursing by visiting the International Association of Forensic Nurses’ website www.ForensicNurses.org.

Lima Software Receives 5 Stars!

SC Magazine, the online site for IT Security Professionals, recently reviewed IntaForensics Lima Forensic Case Management software and awarded it 5 stars!  This is software that you are going to want in your lab; it allows you to follow evidence through the chain, know which investigator is involved in which investigation (and what their strengths are), who your suppliers are, and much more.  It is the only complete software of its kind.

From SC Magazine’s review:

SCMagazineStrengths: Solid case management and record keeping tool with everything you will need to manage a full lab, a law enforcement digital forensics facility or a small practice.

Weaknesses: None that we found.

Verdict: Case management is a task that digital investigators tend to relegate to spreadsheets or whatever notebooks they can find. Something far more rigorous is needed and this is it. Again this year. we make Lima SC Lab Approved.

Check out SC Magazine’s full review here, and then check out the product here.

Recognizing Criminal Activities Associated With Ritualistic and Narco Cultures

There are groups of people whose religious beliefs include the use of actual human remains in their altars or the drinking of human blood.  If you were dispatched to the scene of a tongue that is tied in ribbon, wrapped up in paper, and nailed to a tree, would you know what it signified?  Would you have any idea who might have put it there and why?  Would that person be of danger to you or others in the community?

Ritualistic-and-Occult-CrimesTri-Tech Forensics Training will offer two unique courses towards the end of this year that will assist first responders and forensic investigators with recognizing the difference between criminal and non-criminal activities associated with ritualistic and narco cultures.

Learn more about Ritualistic and Occult Crimes and Investigating Crimes involving Narco Culture by visiting the Tri-Tech Forensics Training website, and read Director Phil Sanfilippo’s blog on this fascinating and dangerous topic.

More than M*A*S*H…

The Korean War is well known to Americans through the television show M*A*S*H, a humorous and often poignant depiction of a group of soldiers in a hospital unit striving to live during a terrifying time.  We well know the comic exploits of Hawkeye and Hotlips.  The show often portrayed some of the most difficult times, though, in an attempt to impart, in some small way, the sacrifices that the men and women in uniform made.  We saw the wounded losing limbs and lives.  Marriages broke up, and children spoke their first words or took their first steps while Daddy was far from home.

Korean War Memorial

Korean War Memorial, Washington, DC

History.com recounts the events as follows: “On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south. This invasion was the first military action of the Cold War. By July, American troops had entered the war on South Korea’s behalf. As far as American officials were concerned, it was a war against the forces of international communism itself. After some early back-and-forth across the 38th parallel, the fighting stalled and casualties mounted with nothing to show for them. Meanwhile, American officials worked anxiously to fashion some sort of armistice with the North Koreans. The alternative, they feared, would be a wider war with Russia and China–or even, as some warned, World War III.

Finally, after more than two years of negotiations, the adversaries signed an armistice on July 27, 1953.  The agreement allowed the POWs to stay where they liked; drew a new boundary near the 38th parallel that gave South Korea an extra 1,500 square miles of territory; and created a 2-mile-wide “demilitarized zone” that still exists today.  In all, some 5 million soldiers and civilians lost their lives during the war. Almost 40,000 Americans died in action in Korea, and more than 100,000 were wounded.”*

On July 27, 2016, sixty-three years after the armistice was signed, Tri-Tech Forensics honors those men and women who sacrificed so much during the Korean War.  You deserve our thanks and respect; we can never thank you enough for your service.

Our Hearts Are Heavy Today

We are shocked and saddened by the brutal, deliberate murders of several Dallas police officers, and we extend our sympathies to their families and friends.  It is a horrible reminder of the evil that waits just beyond that thin, blue line.

We are also grateful to the men and women who are protecting us today, as they do every day.  You are our heroes, and we are always thankful for your service.
