In Our Sights 6 Law Enforcement Product News July/August 2015 Profile from any DNA Sample Parabon NanoLabs Inc.'s Snapshot DNA Phenotyping Service is an investigative forensics service that produces a descriptive profile from any human DNA sample. Snapshot predicts physical characteristics including skin pigmentation, eye and hair color, face morphology, sex, and genomic ancestry, and can identify distant familial relationships between samples. Now available, after three years of development with funding from the DoD, Snapshot provides a first-of-its-kind capability for deter- mining the physical appearance and other characteristics of an individual from a DNA sample, from an active crime scene or skeletal remains.

Not any more. The new MTS (Multi Threat Shield) bag, from Force Training Institute, looks like an average black lap- top bag, but not only can it carry gear—it can also save lives. Built into the MTS is a lightweight and discreet ballistic shield. Whether the threat is an intruder or an active shooter, a quick flick of the wrist swiftly deploys a 3-foot long blanket of protection to defeat multiple impacts from most handgun, shotgun and pistol caliber sub-machine gun threats. The MTS is a true multi-threat shield, offering protection from attacks with blunt objects and edged weapons, as well as punches and kicks. Certified to NIJ Level IIIA (Level III with optional rifle plate insert). The results were "No Penetration," and the MTS will not fold or bend when shot.

Similar to a standard fire alarm, occupants can activate a BluePoint pull sta- tion and instantly notify police of an emer- gency situation to expedite a rapid response. BluePoint uses a highly secure, independent, and dedicated 900 MHz wireless network. The wireless system covers the entire building or campus, plus any surrounding areas (parking lots, athletic fields, etc.). Once activated, an alert from monitoring partner EMERgency24 is immediately sent to local law enforcement with the building address and exact incident location using Visual Point Identification technology. At the same time, build- ing occupants are instantly notified to take precautions through PA or phone systems and mobile phones, as well as blue strobe lights inside and outside the building. It sends occupants, security professionals and administrators a text and/or e-mail notifications, as well as voice calls with pertinent data. The system also establishes a two-way communications flow between a central command group and building occupants. This automation helps panicked per- sonnel act swiftly and reduces the response time of both law enforcement and building occupants.
