In Memoriam: Stan Nielsen (Floyd Stanford Nielsen, J.D.) (1927-2011) & Leona "Lee" Brattland Nielsen (1921-2013)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Leona B. Nielsen (1921-2013). Lee was the wife of the Founder and Director of the National Center for Cold Cases and Cold Case Center and a loving mother.. She will be deeply missed.
On September 23-27, 2013, at the National Laboratory Center in Ammendale, Maryland, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), together with NIJ, will host "Toolmark Identification and Comparison Training." This class supports the identification and comparison of toolmarks commonly encountered in criminal investigations. (NIJ)
Attend Serial Number Restoration Training

In 2005, parents of children ages 3-17 in West Virginia were introduced to an innovative program called AmberView.
Now three successful years later, 72 percent of the state's 700-plus public and private schools safeguard their children through the program, a number that continues to grow each day. More than 40 percent of the state's public and private schoolchildren are presently enrolled in the program.
Sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, AmberView is an initiative of the West Virginia High Technology Consortium (WVHTC) Foundation . AmberView is designed to work in collaboration with State and national AMBER Alert programs. The system has the ability to mass broadcast a digital image of an abducted child to law enforcement, news media, and citizens within minutes of an official AMBER Alert.
For more information about the program, visit www.amberview.org.
