The 3rd National Criminal Science Technology Competition

November 24, 2023

On November 21, 2023, the 3rd National Criminal Science Technology Competition was jointly organized in Beijing by the Ministryof Public Security, the All-China Federation of Trade Unions, and the People's Public Security University of China. The event featured 160 participants from diverse public security departments and bureaus nationwide, forming 32 teams to competein the finals.

The venue for the competition was partitioned into 32 areas,each separated by red and blue walls. Each area was further subdivided into a simulated crime scene, CSI documents preparation and submission sections. The competition was based on actual criminal cases in telecom network fraud, providing daily necessities, computers, VOIP, routers, and other electronic devices.

The competition incorporated both conventional and contemporary criminal investigation techniques, which were combined to include electronic evidence, video, fingerprints, shoeprints, and DNA. A specialized competition application has been created, which included four modules: crime scene fingerprint comparison, shoeprint comparison, video portrait comparison, and DNA comparison. Electronic evidence could be matched in real-time, and the results were provided immediately, enabling swift responses from the participating teams.

Everspry Science & Technology, a manufacturer of software and hardware for shoeprint recognition and analysis,was proud to have indirectly supported this competition, ensuring the event's smooth operation. Our intelligent light source, intelligent shoeprint scanner and the shoeprint software querying shoe models based on crime scene shoeprints were utilized by multiple participating teams. The straightforward interface, quick and accurate search results garnered unanimous praise from the participants.

This competition aimed to evaluate the standardization,accuracy, and scientific nature of crime scene investigations by participating police officers. The investigation process involved the use of electronic evidence, video, fingerprints, shoeprints, DNA, and other criminal technology. The overall level of crime scene investigation and inspection capabilities forvarious types of cases across the country was assessed. The professional quality and innovation ability of criminal technology police officers were improved, and their case-solving skills and professional capabilities were greatly enhanced. This solid foundation laid the groundwork for future case investigations.
