Message from the SWGIT Chair

January 1, 2003

Dear Colleague:

The Scientific Working Group on Imaging Technologies (SWGIT) was created to provide leadership to the law enforcement community by developing guidelines for good practices for the use of imaging technologies in the criminal justice system. With this edition of Forensic Science Communications, we present one such document relating to those guidelines for your review.

This document, Recommendations and Guidelines for the Use of Digital Image Processing in the Criminal Justice System, was previously released as a draft in 2001 for public review and comment. Based on the resulting feedback, we have revised the document and now present a final version.

This document represents the work of more than 30 photographers, scientists, instructors, and managers from more than two dozen federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, as well as from the academic and research communities. The document represents the consensus of opinion of this membership and should not be construed as the official policy of any one of the represented agencies.

A goal of the SWGIT is to engage the entire law enforcement imaging community in the development of these guidelines. Please review the document carefully and give us your feedback. Click to go to instructions

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,


Richard W. Vorder Bruegge
Chair, SWGIT
