    Electronic Crime Scene Investigation: An On-the-Scene Reference for First Responders is a quick reference for first responders who may be responsible for identifying, preserving, collecting and securing evidence at an electronic crime scene. It describes different types of electronic devices and the potential evidence they may hold, and provides an overview of how to secure, evaluate and document the scene. It describes how to collect, package and transport digital evidence and lists of potential sources of digital evidence for 14 crime categories.

    1. Order bound and laminated copies from NCJRS.
    2. Download and print (pdf, 50 pages)
    3. Download an e-Reader version:
    4. Download and print the 'booklet' version (pdf, 26 pages) undefined this version has been formatted so you can print, fold and bind the pages to create an on-demand version similar to the printed version. When printing:
      • Select "2-sided" or "duplex" printing.
      • Select "binding on short side."

    Thirty years ago, eight in 10 Americans ages 1719 had a driver's license.
    Today, it's six in 10, says a recent update published in Traffic Injury Prevention by Michael Sivak and Brandon Schoettle of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.

    In a followup to their previous studies examining the percentage of young persons with driver's licenses, Sivak and Schoettle say the trend has accelerated. In 1983, about 87 percent of 19yearolds, 80 percent of 18yearolds and 69 percent of 17yearolds owned a driver's license. New data shows that in 2010, those numbers have plummeted even more: about 70 percent of 19-year-olds, 61 percent of 18-year-olds and 46 percent of 17-year-olds had a driver's license.

    "Overall, the observed decrease in driver licensing is consistent with the continued increase in Internet usage," Sivak said. "In our previous research, we found that the percentage of young drivers was inversely related to the proportion of Internet users. Virtual contact, through electronic means, reduces the need for actual contact."

    For more details, read the entire press release written by Bernie DeGroat, Associate Director of the University of Michigan News Service.

    NCSA Traffic Safety Fact Sheet “2010 Rural/Urban Comparison” (DOT-HS-811-637) In 2010, there were 30,196 fatal crashes resulting in 32,885 fatalities. Rural areas accounted for 54 percent (16,292) of the fatal crashes and 55 percent (18,026) of the fatalities as compared to urban areas which accounted for 45 percent (13,608) of the fatal crashes and 44 percent (14,546) of the fatalities.  http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/811637.pdf

     

    NCSA Research Note “Early Estimate of Motor Vehicle Traffic Fatalities for the First Quarter (January – March) of 2012” (DOT-HS-811-642):  This Research Note provides a statistical projection of traffic fatalities for the first quarter of 2012.  Data shows that an estimated 7,630 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes during the first quarter of 2012.  This represents a significant increase of about 13.5 percent as compared to the 6,720 fatalities that were projected to have occurred in the first quarter of 2011.    http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/811642.pdf

     

    “MMUCC Guideline Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria Fourth Edition” (DOT-HS -811-631):   Statewide motor vehicle traffic crash data systems provide the basic information necessary for effective highway and traffic safety efforts at any level of government – local, State, or Federal. State crash data are used to perform problem identification, establish goals and performance measures, allocate resources, determine the progress of specific programs, and support the development and evaluation of highway and vehicle safety countermeasures. The purpose of the Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria (MMUCC) is to provide a dataset for describing crashes of motor vehicles in transport that will generate the information necessary to improve highway safety within each State and nationally.   http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/811631.pdf

    One of the most effective countermeasures in reducing traffic fatalities is creating general deterrence through High Visibility Enforcement (HVE). When the perceived risk of getting caught by law enforcement goes up, the likelihood that people will engage in unsafe driving behaviors goes down.

    The High Visibility Enforcement Toolkit has been designed to assist law enforcement agencies, communities, and states implement or enhance their HVE efforts. The HVE Toolkit has been created with assistance from a High Visibility Enforcement Panel consisting of field experts effectively implementing HVE in their jurisdiction or community.

    Motor Vehicle Crash Deaths in U.S. Metropolitan Areas undefined 2009

    Photo of teen girl in driver’s seat

    A CDC study released today compares motor vehicle crash death rates in the fifty most populous areas of the country with overall national rates. Researchers analyzed 2009 data from the National Vital Statistics System and the U.S. Census Bureau and calculated rates for two groups undefined people of all ages, and young people 15 to 24 years old. They looked at 15-24 year olds separately because motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for this age group.

    Some key findings:

    • The motor vehicle crash death rate for all ages in the 50 MSAs was 8.2 deaths per 100,000 residents, lower than the national rate of 11.1 deaths per 100,000 residents.
    • The motor vehicle crash death rate for 15-24 year olds in the 50 MSAs was 13.0 deaths per 100,000 residents, lower than the national rate of 17.3 deaths per 100,000 residents.
    • Motor vehicle crash death rates in the 50 most populous U.S. metropolitan statistical areas varied widely, from 4.4 to 17.8 per 100,000 residents.

    On July 9, 2012, President Obama signed into U.S. law the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (S.3187), which includes the Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 2012. 

     

    The bill itemizes all of the new synthetic compounds (synthetic cannabinoids and bath salts) which have now been added to Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act.

    Congress Agrees to Add 26 Synthetic Drugs to Controlled Substances Act

     

    The Drug Enforcement Administration today commended House and Senate negotiators for agreeing on legislation to control 26 synthetic drugs under the Controlled Substances Act.  These drugs include those commonly found in products marketed as “K2” and “Spice.”

    The addition of these chemicals to Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act will be included as part of S. 3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act. Schedule I substances are those with a high potential for abuse; have no medical use in treatment in the United States; and lack an accepted safety for use of the drug.

    In addition to scheduling the 26 drugs, the new law would double the length of time a substance may be temporarily placed in Schedule I (from 18 to 36 months).  In addition to explicitly naming 26 substances, the legislation creates a new definition for “cannabamimetic agents,” creating criteria by which similar chemical compounds are controlled.

     

    Please find the entire text of the news release here

     

    Here is the list of drugs the DEA specifically proposes to ban:

     

    15 cannabinoids, 2 stimulants (Mephedrone and MDPV), and 9 2C compounds:

    (i) 5-(1,1-dimethylheptyl)-2-[(1R,3S)-3-hydroxycyclohexyl]-phenol (CP-47,497);

    (ii) 5-(1,1-dimethyloctyl)-2-[(1R,3S)-3-hydroxycyclohexyl]-phenol (cannabicyclohexanol or CP-47,497 C8-homolog);

    (iii) 1-pentyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-018 and AM678);

    (iv) 1-butyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-073);

    (v) 1-hexyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-019);

    (vi) 1-[2-(4-morpholinyl)ethyl]-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-200);

    (vii) 1-pentyl-3-(2-methoxyphenylacetyl)indole (JWH-250);

    (viii) 1-pentyl-3-[1-(4-methoxynaphthoyl)]indole (JWH-081);

    (ix) 1-pentyl-3-(4-methyl-1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-122);

    (x) 1-pentyl-3-(4-chloro-1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-398);

    (xi) 1-(5-fluoropentyl)-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (AM2201);

    (xii) 1-(5-fluoropentyl)-3-(2-iodobenzoyl)indole (AM694);

    (xiii) 1-pentyl-3-[(4-methoxy)-benzoyl]indole (SR-19 and RCS-4);

    (22) 2-(4-Chloro-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)ethanamine (2C-C).

    (23) 2-(4-Iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)ethanamine (2C-I).

    (24) 2-[4-(Ethylthio)-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl]ethanamine (2C-T-2).

    The U.S. Supreme Court failed to come to any consensus upon the most recent Confrontation Clause case.   The justices fractured into four separate opinions that took 95 pages to explain.  

    The article discussing the decision is here.
