Intruction by: NJ Motor Vehicle Commission
Register Now

This course will assist law enforcement (Patrol Officers as well as Detectives) with training that will enhance their ability to recognize and identify the universe of identity-related documents issued by and relied upon by the NJ MVC. With emerging technology it has become increasingly difficult to identify fraudulent documents. Students will learn what tools are available to assist them in identifying counterfeit documents by providing “hands on" training and experience in the recognition of fraud as it pertains to documents such as: driver licenses, redesigned 2017 permanent resident cards, redesigned 2017 employment authorization cards, “Next Generation" passports and Social Security cards. Participants will learn the newest trends in counterfeiting of identity documents by “on-line" manufacturers, which has become increasingly common due to the ease in obtaining access to previously unpublished document security technology. The latest trend involves a significant increase in the counterfeiting of driver's licenses from Puerto Rico. This course will also identify the differences between counterfeit and genuine NJ inspection stickers, temporary registrations and certificates of title.

 

In addition, this class will review facial recognition technology as it is used by the Motor Vehicle Commission on all images captured as well as the process that is used with the submission of a photo for a “manual upload". Of paramount importance is a cutting edge investigative tool available to law enforcement at the New Jersey Regional Operations Intelligence Center (ROIC). Known as the “Facial Recognition Initiative", this technology utilizes the Photo Imaging Mugshot System maintained by the New York/New Jersey “HIDTA" program. Along with the instruction, the students will receive a booklet with the totality of the identity document safety features, a “cheat sheet" with the 50 states driver's license ID features and an asset sheet listing all of the investigative support services available through the MVC to law enforcement for future reference.  ​

Note: This is a hands-on course, and all trainees must be in good physical condition.  A MEDICAL CLEARANCE IS REQUIRED!

Digital Video Recorders (DVR) for the Investigator

Date(s): 7/17/23-7/18/23

Intruction by: Gloucester Co. Pros. High Tech Crimes Unit

This two-day basic course is designed for examiners/investigators and demonstrates methodologies and techniques used to recover video evidence from Digital Video Recorders and cloud-based systems. It is intended for those new to the field of digital multimedia evidence (DME). Students learn the concepts of video forensics and garner skills needed to process recoverable evidence from video images.

 

The increased use of digital video systems by the general public has made digital multimedia evidence (DME) a significant and integral part of modern criminal and civil investigations. Since there is no standard video recording system in use, the need for trained individuals who know how to properly recover this type of evidence has increased. Properly acquiring DME is crucial, as all other processes or use of the video are impacted by the accuracy of the recovery. This course introduces and provides a fundamental understanding of DME, introduces the types of systems likely to be encountered, discusses legal issues related to DME, and focuses on the proper recovery of DME. The public expectation today is that if a crime occurs, there will be video/audio of the incident. There is a significant, specific skill set that investigators need to PROPERLY handle and process the digital multimedia evidence that gets collected. If the DME is not handled and processed carefully, according to best practices, the video/audio might not be interpreted accurately.

 

Some goals and objectives of the class include:  Retrieving the best quality video evidence for an investigation; Editing video for investigative purposes; and Disseminating video to the public for lead generation.

 

Prerequisite: Students are expected to have an average skill level with computers such as: creating folders, saving files, navigating through the Windows environment, basic troubleshooting skills, installing software, etc. Basic computer skills are not taught in this course.​

Pedestrian/Bicycle Crash Investigation
40 Seats Remaining

Date(s): 6/5/23-6/9/23

Intruction by: IPTM Staff
Register Now

Pedestrian and bicycle crashes are one of the most frequent types of injurious crashes in urban areas. Because of their unique nature, special techniques are required to investigate and reconstruct these incidents. This course addresses the special dynamics involved in pedestrian and bicycle traffic crashes. From reaction times to victim injury analysis to environmental factors, officers will learn to recognize and interpret the evidence and correlate it with the collision sequence. Topics Include: Pedestrian crash problems; Pedestrian impact dynamics; Types and collection of data: objective, subjective and performance; Pedestrian conspicuity; Reaction time/human factors; Reconstruction techniques and much more!  Prerequisite: Crash II.  New Jersey officers will be given preference over out-of-state officers in the registration process.

Intruction by: IPTM Staff

Officers will learn the latest theories and methodologies of crash reconstruction and expand their knowledge of the principles of collision analysis in this advanced course. Attendees will explore topics that have previously received limited coverage, as well as many new ones. While the course can be thought of as “in-service" training for traffic crash reconstructionist, ACTAR candidates will also find it beneficial. Instructors will review the mathematical equations that are used in conjunction with crash data to interpret how a collision occurred. Emphasis will be placed upon skid characteristics, spin analysis, critical speed yaw analysis and friction. The concepts of time-distance, uniform circular motion, pole impacts, and conservation of linear momentum are just a few of the topics that will be covered.

 

As part of the course, officers will be required to complete several in-class projects and a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary project designed to reinforce the class material.

Topics Include: Using geometry, trigonometry and selected mathematical topics as needed; Dynamics, kinematics, and Newton's Laws of Motion as vector equations; Drag/acceleration factor testing and determination; Critical speed yaw analysis and much more!  Prerequisite: Traffic Crash Reconstruction.  New Jersey officers will be given preference over out-of-state officers in the registration process.
