Australian Institute of Criminology - The market for amphetamine-type stimulants and their precursors in OceaniaOceania, most notably Australia and New Zealand, has emerged as the region with the highest rate of consumption of amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS), including ecstasy, a disproportionately large share in relation to the population in the area. The illicit ATS trade in Oceania is of great concern to contemporary criminal justice and poses an imminent challenge to law enforcement agencies, governments, and the international community. This study examines the market for ATS in Oceania including Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands, and the involvement of criminal organisations in that market. It explores contemporary patterns of ATS production, trafficking, and demand in the region, analyses the involvement of organised crime, and reviews current legislative frameworks - domestic and international - to penalise activities in the illicit ATS market, especially those relating to organised crime activities. The study focuses on the production, trafficking, importation, and consumption of ATS in

(1/21) Comparison of PowerPlex 16, PowerPlex1.1/2.1, and ABI AmpfISTR Profiler Plus/COfiler for forensic use.
AIM: Several amplification and detection formats for the analysis of short tandem repeat loci are readily available to the forensic laboratory. Careful consideration must be given to the throughput, sensitivity, concordance, data interpretation, facility requirements, and costs of operation. The Pennsylvania State Police DNA Laboratory sought to establish that of any of the amplification or detection formats generally used in the United States generates concordant results and that the use of several formats within one laboratory provides a solution to the interpretation of difficult evidentiary samples. METHODS: Validation work consisting of sensitivity, precision, mixture, and substrate studies was performed by use of each of three detection formats (ABI Prism(r)310 Genetic Analyzer, ABI Prism(r)377 DNA Sequencer, and the Hitachi FMBIO(r)II Fluorescent Scanner) and three amplification systems (GenePrint(r) PowerPlex 16, GenePrint(r) PowerPlex 1.1/2.1, and AmpflSTR ProfilerPlus/COfiler). The results generated in each of the formats were compared, along with the problems incurred. RESULTS: All allele calls were concordant, with the exception of primer region variants, and all detection systems were sensitive and reliable. Even with the use of multiple formats, a general protocol can be written with only one set of interpretation guidelines. CONCLUSION: National databases can be used with input data from any of these formats. The use of several detection formats allowed the forensic scientist to select a system, based on sample quality, quantity, and throughput requirements. Interpretation issues resulting from complex mixtures, degraded samples, rare microvariants, internal primer variants, unusual heterozygote ratios, above or below ladder alleles, and potential tri-alleles can be verified.

(2/21) Interpretation of complex forensic DNA mixtures.
Forensic evidentiary samples routinely contain DNA from multiple contributors. The interpretation of these mixtures can be a challenging task for the DNA scientist. Several approaches are discussed (no calculation- qualitative statement; probability of exclusion; likelihood ratio estimates; presumptive genotype assignment based on peak heights), which have been employed to assess the significance of an inclusion/match when DNA mixtures have been detected in casework samples. These statistical approaches are discussed in light of technical challenges that can arise when evaluating evidentiary samples. (+info)
(3/21) Implementation of forensic DNA analysis on casework evidence at the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Crime Laboratory: historical perspective.
Palm Beach County is the largest of the 64 counties in the state of Florida, USA, with most of the area uninhabited and the population concentrated near the coastal region. The Serology/DNA Section of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office (PBSO) Crime Laboratory serves a community of approximately one million residents, and an additional million tourists visit Palm Beach County every year. In addition to the unincorporated county regions, there are thirty-four city police agencies, the Florida State Highway Patrol, several university security agencies, the local Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the county Medical Examiners Office that all use the PBSO Serology/DNA Laboratory for the analysis of casework evidence. The purpose of this manuscript is to provide laboratories that are in the process of initiating DNA analysis on casework with practical information regarding the decision-making processes that occurred during the development of the DNA testing program at PBSO. Many of the concerns addressed in the early 1990's are still a guide to the development of a quality forensic DNA analysis program in the year 2001. Issues, such as personnel, laboratory space, internal standard operating procedures, implementation of DNA analysis on casework evidence, and building a relationship with law enforcement personnel are discussed.

(4/21) Establishing a large DNA data bank using the PowerPlex 1.1 and 2.1 systems.
In the early 1990's, the importance of establishing a DNA Data Bank of convicted sex offender samples for comparison to unsolved cases became apparent to the Virginia Division of Forensic Science to help identify potential perpetrators. Ultimately, through the expansion of the data basing law to include all convicted offenders and juveniles convicted of a crime that would be considered a felony if tried as an adult, the Division has successfully used the DNA Data Bank to aid the law enforcement community in solving crimes where the victim was unable to identify the perpetrator. As the number of offender sample analyses has increased, in combination with the number of analyses of cases where a suspect could not be identified, the number of DNA Data Bank hits has also significantly increased. Initially, in 1997, when the Division converted its DNA Data Bank program from the restriction fragment length polymorphism technology to the short tandem repeat technology, one offender hit occurred on average for every 2,900 convicted offender samples that were entered into the Data Bank. However, by December 31, 2000, one DNA Data Bank hit occurred on average for every 700 samples entered into the Data Bank. (+info)
(5/21) Identification of missing persons: the Spanish "Phoenix" program.
In 1999, Spain was the first country to officially start a National Program to try to identify cadavers and human remains which could not be identified by the use of traditional forensic approaches. This attempt is called "Phoenix Program". Two independent mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) databases were generated, which can automatically compare and match identical or similar sequences. One is the Reference Database, with mtDNA sequences from maternal relatives of missing persons, who provide the samples (buccal swabs) voluntarily; the other is the Questioned Database, comprised of mtDNA data of unknown remains and cadavers. Although the first phase of the program (typing of all unidentified human remains) will probably not be completed until December 2003, positive identifications are being made in the interim. To date, more than 1,200 families have contacted Phoenix, and at least 280 reference samples and 48 questioned evidences have been analyzed. When mtDNA matches are found, another independent analysis is performed as a part of the quality control mechanism. Once a match is confirmed (so far in 6 cases), an attempt is made to analyze short tandem repeat (STR) loci. We call for international collaboration to make this effort valuable worldwide. (+info)
(6/21) Mass identification of persons missing from the break-up of the former Yugoslavia: structure, function, and role of the International Commission on Missing Persons.
The staff of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) is attempting to undertake the largest mass human identification effort in history. Through the generosity of numerous governmental and private corporations the ICMP has established or is currently establishing a strong network of political allies, family outreach centers, and DNA laboratories throughout the former Yugoslavia. Furthermore, the ICMP is currently working to streamline current technology as well as employ new technology in its efforts to assist in identifying missing individuals. ICMP will continue to act as a link between the family associations in the region and will synchronize the work of the DNA identification process in the countries affected by the war in the regions of the former Yugoslavia. In the longer term, ICMP seeks to contribute to the closure of the missing persons issue, to raise awareness of the human dimension of the missing persons tragedy, and to preserve a shared and common memory of the missing in the former Yugoslavia.

(7/21) The Green Revolution: botanical contributions to forensics and drug enforcement.
Forensic botany encompasses many sub-disciplines, including plant anatomy, plant ecology, plant systematics, plant molecular biology, palynology, and limnology. Although the field of forensic botany has been recognized since the mid-1900's, the use of trace plant material as physical evidence in criminal casework is still novel. A review of published forensic casework that used plant evidence is presented here. Cases include the analysis of wood evidence in the Charles Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the use of pollen in establishing the location of a sexual assault, and pollen analysis to determine the time of year for burial in a mass grave. Additional cases discuss the use of plant growth rates to determine the time of a body deposit in a field, the use of diatoms to link individuals to a crime scene, and plant DNA typing to match seedpods to a tree under which a body was discovered. New DNA methods in development for plant species identification and individualization for forensic applications are also discussed. These DNA methods may be useful for linking an individual to a crime scene or physical evidence to a geographic location, or tracking marijuana distribution patterns. (+info)
(8/21) The one that did not get away: individual assignment using microsatellite data detects a case of fishing competition fraud.
Assignment of an individual to the population from which it most probably originated based on its multilocus genotype has been widely applied in recent years. In this study, individual assignment based on microsatellite data was used to identify a case of fishing competition fraud. Despite the fact that the true population of origin was most probably not among the reference populations, recent modifications of the assignment tests were used in confidently excluding (p < 0.0001) the possibility of a 5.5 kg salmon (Salmo salar) originating from the fishing competition location, Lake Saimaa (south-east Finland). In fact, the probability of the suspect salmon originating from one of the regions that supply most of Finland's fish markets was found to be over 600 times higher than it originating from Lake Saimaa. When presented with this evidence, the offender confessed to purchasing the salmon at a local fish shop and criminal charges were laid. This study emphasizes the potential practical application of the individual assignment procedure, in particular the usefulness of confidently excluding populations as the origin of an individual. A similar strategy could be also used, for example in suspected cases of illegal poaching, in order to assign or exclude individuals from originating from a claimed population. (+info)
