Investigators get 3-D crime scanner

crime scene mgmt1 2405 Investigators get 3 D crime scannerBy Guillermo X. Garcia - Express-News

Bexar County’s criminal investigators soon will have cutting-edge help as they comb through crime scenes: a 3-D, computerized laser scanning system.

County commissioners approved the $207,000 purchase Tuesday.

“This is state-of-the-art equipment,” said Jose Treviño, the Sheriff’s Office homicide supervisor. “This will provide much more accurate data, and much quicker, to investigators at the scene.”

The system, which will be operational by March, takes a 3-D electronic photograph that plots objects in a 360-degree scan.

The unit “will all but eliminate human error” when it comes to measuring and plotting crime scene evidence, Treviño said.

“Eliminating the human error means you’ll have much greater chance that evidence won’t be missed,” he added. “It also guarantees much more accuracy in documenting the evidence’s location.”

Law enforcement officials say they plan to use the tool to probe major incidents, such as bank robberies, homicides and large-scale traffic accidents.

POLL: “What do you do for a living?” – “Um, it’s top secret?”

Top Secret 3D Mapping/Laser ScanningWhile waiting for my coffee at Starbucks this morning, I recognized one of the fathers from my son’s basketball league. We shook hands and started into what I knew needed to be a short conversation since we were both on a mission to get our coffee and get to the office. One always has a choice to make in these situations – keep the conversation focused on what each other have in common, or throw caution to the wind and go with something that always ends up being a lengthy, involved explanation. I chose, like I usually make the mistake of doing, the latter. I was interested in what he did for a living and where his office was, but I knew as soon as I started to ask the question that he would reciprocate with the same.
