Expert examination, provenance, improvement.
Forensic Analysis of Electronic Devices
Digital evidence features in daily life. Legal decisions hinge on having data that can identify exactly what people have actually done.
Validated processes that are regulatory compliant are used to conduct investigations to confirm or disprove the existence of potential evidence held on digital devices for use at trial (prosecution or defence). Using accredited methodology and competent staff to correctly gather, analyse and present the digital evidence identified within the various devices.
A detailed report complying with all current regulations and guidance from the Forensic Regulator is provided detailing the results found and the process undertaken to obtain those results. All reporting is peer reviewed to ensure results are validated prior to supply.
Telecommunications evidence is complex by nature, often confusing and difficult to understand. Usually passed on in the same format along the service chain from specialist to trial, making it difficult for a juror to assimilate the information and reach an informed decision.
We have over 20 years experience presenting telecoms data in an interactive graphical format that is easy to understand, allowing jurors to reach an informed decision about its importance and relevance.
Electronic Jury Bundles
'Review Lite’ has been developed for use during trial. It can be installed onto hand held tablet devices and seamlessly links with the full ‘Review’ product.
The tablets are used during the trial as the electronic Jury Bundle. They can replace, or be used alongside other digital media and paper exhibits. 'Review Lite’ can be used pre-trial by legal professionals to review, prepare and update evidence whether in the office or on the go.
'Review Lite’ is simple to use and secure in service. There is an annotation facility to allow users to record, identify and review evidence as the trial progresses.
3D Scene Reconstruction
Recreate cold case evidence using the 21st century techniques from information gathered at the time of the event or occurrence, which in some cases can be many years ago. Any scene, weapon, implement, event or occurrence can be graphically reconstructed in 3D as a sequence of events, image or user controlled walk through. Allowing the investigation team (prosecution or defence) to determine where they move or look within the virtual scene. Document searches with enhanced software can assist in identifying unidentified links or nominals. During the investigative review cycle new techniques often assist in identifying critical information that either was not linked to or did not exist at the time.
Acume Forensics have the facilities to digitally recreate a cold case from the original evidence. Evidence can be graphically reconstructed as a 3D sequence of events, digital image or a user controlled walk-through. Use of this technology opens up the possibility to re-examine witness viewpoints, validate statements and test old and new hypothesis.
One of the most important demonstrative visual aids in a courtroom is a Timeline. A Timeline is a graphical representation of the combined evidence, usually presented in chronological order. This allows complex information to be displayed in a simple and relevant manner, allowing a Jury to comprehend and retain information with which to reach an informed verdict.
