The Street Cop and Active Investigator’s Dream:
LODIS -- A simple investigative tool to generate DNA leads for locally important offenses and offenders.
Imagine taking serial offenders committing the most common crimes off the streets by tying them to DNA evidence collected from property crimes. Imagine doing this in days, rather than months or years. It’s what the Palm Bay Florida Police Department and others are doing now.
Law enforcement has an edge with LODIS, which accepts any legally obtained evidence law enforcement agencies choose to submit for entry into their own local agency DNA Identification Repository. Departments simply submit items from locally important crimes, suspects and offenders, and then they are automatically notified within days when the agency’s LODIS system has identified new DNA Hits and leads.
Take the next step in law enforcement so your agency can benefit from the power of rapid DNA lead generation – twice as many suspects identified, twice as many arrest, twice the prosecution rate leading to greatly reduced property crime rates.
With LODIS, your agency collects and submits evidence for DNA processing with results in your searchable, flexible local agency database and can arrange to share data with other agencies as well.
Patrol-Based: Specialized evidence collection kits for detectives, patrol officers or CSI make it easy to submit items from crime scene evidence and known persons for entry into the agency’s DNA Repository. Training for collection of contact DNA from property crimes is provided.
Simple and Flexible: Agencies may submit items for locally important offenses and offenders. Batch shipments allow fast collation of hundreds of samples from individual officers.
Automated and Fast -- Auto alerts notify officers within days when the agency’s LODIS program identifies new HITS. Court-ready Forensic Case Reports are available upon request.
