India, US discuss security measures

and evidence collection techniques, according to the US Embassy sources.

The law enforcement exchange programme concluded at the Central Detective Training School of the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) in Chandigarh, Punjab on March 11.

The US Ambassador to India Timothy J Roemer, in reference to the law enforcement exchange programme, said: “the evolving nature of terrorist and criminal acts requires an array of sophisticated tools, specialized examination, and scientific methods to ensure that culprits are successfully brought to justice.  All Indians and Americans alike – from police officers to the average citizen – benefit when our law enforcement officials have the proper training and expertise to effectively analyze a crime scene and accurately determine the perpetrators of heinous crimes that target innocent civilians.

“After the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, the US and India cooperated closely to provide the forensic work and testimony that convicted terrorist mastermind Ajmal Kasab.  Collaboration between the US and India helped bring him to justice.  Transnational criminals and terrorist organizations know no borders, and exchanges such as this one are an excellent method for the US and India to partner together to enhance our shared capabilities and fight a threat that is faced by every country.”

Sixteen Indian officers, selected by the Ministry of Home Affairs and BPRD from state agencies across India, participated in the exchange. FBI subject matter experts came to India to discuss best practices on a variety of crime scene issues with participants. Topics covered include crime scene administration and management, body fluid and blood collection, crime scene photography, DNA evidence collection, hair and fiber collection, latent fingerprints, and human remains recovery.
