Legally compliant state-of-the-art capabilities to fight and prevent transnational crimes by Garg, Shivam — last modified Jul 24, 2020
With the increased reliance on new and rapidly evolving technologies to commit and facilitate crime, law enforcement agencies (LEA) must keep pace with the constant technological developments to stay ahead of criminals and maintain a safe environment. The ROXANNE advanced technical platform aims to enhance the quality of investigative work in tracking and identifying criminals by developing an innovative solution that combines speech, text and video data analysis with the analysis of organized crime networks. To be effective and lawfully implemented, such innovative police technologies must be part of an appropriate legal framework based on the principle of law, fundamental human rights and other applicable legislation ( Often innovative fields, such as data analysis for law enforcement purposes and the use of novel analytical methods, are subject to legal uncertainty due to outdated legal texts or insufficient guidance from legislators, be it domestic or regional)
Forensics Visualizations as a catalyst for fighting organized crime by Garg, Shivam — last modified Jun 30, 2020
Criminals often employ sophisticated technologies in planning and executing their illegal activities, as well as concealing the revenues stemming from them. Suppressing organized crime remains an important but challenging task for Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) for several reasons. In this context, visualisation plays a key role in augmenting the human analysis and providing context to the analyst.
ROXANNE platform & network analysis by Garg, Shivam — last modified Jun 19, 2020
Maximizing the speed of investigations is one of the key factors in the presence of dynamically changing and technologically savvy organized criminals. A number of automated network analysis methods were developed in the past that can be borrowed to help investigators to identify key players, paths and relations within the resulting networks in order to analyse the development of the network, find effective strategies toward its destabilisation or disruption and overall to increase investigation effectiveness.
Combination of Speech and Text Technologies with Criminal Network Analysis: Steps Toward First Field-Test Event of ROXANNE Project by Garg, Shivam — last modified May 11, 2020
For law enforcement agencies (LEAs) to keep up in this new environment, they must change their approach to criminal investigations as relying mainly on physical evidence and witness statements is no longer sufficient in many cases. Training in research-based investigative procedures and access to related tools and resources can help law enforcement officers carry out successful investigations. It can help LEAs solve cases more swiftly and even prevent crimes in some cases.
Web based Training (WbT) for the engagement of technology providers and LEAs through EU Funded Projects by Garg, Shivam — last modified Apr 06, 2020
A combination of “synchronous” and “asynchronous” modes can be adopted for WbT instructions. This blog discusses various possibilities around the same.
Artificial Intelligence Adoption in Law enforcement by Garg, Shivam — last modified Feb 21, 2020
The ROXANNE project has a principal objective to enhance the LEAs’ efforts to discover criminal networks and identify their members. It has capitalised on certain aspects of AI technologies. Speech and language technologies (SLTs), visual analysis (VA) and network analysis (NA) will become the basis of ROXANNE platform, which will enhance criminal network analysis capabilities by providing a framework for extracting evidence and actionable intelligence.
