The continuation of the 3rd Forensic Science International Lecture Series entitled “Meliora: Over and Beyond the Forensic Science Horizon” was successfully pulled through by the College of Criminal Justice Education and Forensics (CCJEF) last Saturday, September 24, 2022, via Zoom meeting and Facebook live, featuring the two expert guest speakers in the different fields of forensic science.
Dr. Niño M. Kabiling, the CCJEF dean, started the Day 2 International Lecture Series with his welcoming remarks and by conveying his gratitude to everyone who took part in the event and, most importantly, to the notable guest speakers who accepted the invitation despite the time difference to impart their knowledge and experiences in their field of specializations. Dr. Kabiling also briefly introduced the topics focusing on documenting and collecting evidences.
Dr. Andrew Reitnauer, CEO and founder of Delta Forensics LLC, the USA, and Ms. Divya Dubey, consultant - Risk, Threat, and Response at Spire Solution, Dubai and a Licensed Operator on Layered Voice Analysis (LVA) served as the resource speakers.
Dr. Reitnauer provided an overview of Forensic Photography and its transition from film to digital photography. He also explained forensic photography more deeply by using the case study entitled “Case Closed: Evidentiary Photography.” He presented actual photographs that came from a real crime scene and highlighted how vital the role of forensic photography is. Dr. Reitnauer emphasized how crucial lighting and documentation is important when capturing evidence.
Ms. Dubvey shared her knowledge about LVA, how it works, and its importance. She discussed how the human voice can aid in truth seeking. She stressed that LVA analyzes emotional changes in the levels of risk, cognitive dissonance, imagination, hesitation, thinking effort, and embarrassment, as all defendants (innocent or guilty) are under pressure.
To formally end the event, Mr. Emmanuel C. Manahan, the CCJEF program coordinator, expressed his gratitude to everyone who participated and spared their time to learn more about the various fields in forensic science, which aided in the investigation process.
Almost 2,000 participants from various higher educational institutions, professionals, and forensic science enthusiasts joined the event. The last day of the lecture will resume on the 30th day of September.
