2021 Annual Conference Sponsor In The Spotlight: CAPERS North America

Posted: July 10, 2021

We'd like to thank CAPERS North America for its continued support of CACP. They were a Registration Sponsor at the 2021 Annual Conference and we are glad they were able to join us!

SB-217 Made Easy.

CAPERS Software is already compliant with SB-217 and is currently working with the State to electronically file the necessary data directly with the State.

CAPERS was designed with smaller agencies in mind, giving agencies with as few as one officer more bells and whistles than the private-equity backed companies, for less. CAPERS makes compliance with SB-217 and NIBRS easy, as smaller agencies typically do not have the funds available for training. And speaking of training, with CAPERS both initial and on-going training is included, ensuring everyone in the agency is using the software to its highest potential.

Set up is easy and since CAPERS only works with small to mid-sized agencies your agency will experience customer service typically only given to larger cities. CAPERS is the most robust system available to smaller agencies and is available on-prem, SaaS or Hosted.

If you’re struggling with SB-217 or NIBRS compliance and not getting the customer service you deserve from your current CAD/RMS vendor it might be time to see what CAPERS can do for you.

How Your Agency Can Solve Cold Cases Using Investigative Genetic Genealogy

*Paid Advertisement* 

Investigative genetic genealogy, also known as forensic genetic genealogy, combines the use of crime scene DNA and SNP-based relative matching with genealogical research to predict where a suspect or unidentified person may fit in a family tree. Crime scene DNA samples are converted to SNP files by an independent lab and the SNP files are uploaded to two DNA databases—GEDmatch and FamilyTreeDNA. These two DNA databases offer users the ability to opt in for law enforcement access, and law enforcement SNP files are only compared against users who have opted in. Investigative genetic genealogists then build family trees using the match lists to determine how a suspect or unidentified person is related to their matches. Determining how different genetic networks or clusters of relatives connect can oftentimes narrow the search down to a small number of family members or to a specific person. These investigative leads are then given to the law enforcement agency, who must then confirm the leads with DNA STR testing by a government forensic lab.
Steps for investigative genetic genealogy submission:
  1. Confirm that your case is an unsolved violent crime that is permitted by the GEDmatch and FamilyTreeDNA terms of service (homicide, non-negligent homicide, aggravated assault, rape, robbery, kidnapping, and unidentified human remains).
  2. Confirm that your unknown suspect’s DNA has been submitted to CODIS and there are no hits, or confirm there are not hits in CODIS on your unidentified human remains.
  3. Confirm that a suitable DNA sample exists in your case (varies by lab).
  4. Send subsample to a lab that can perform SNP analysis.
  5. Obtain SNP file for upload to GEDmatch and FamilyTreeDNA.

Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and Justice & Security Strategies (JSS) Announce a New Micro-grant Program

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and Justice & Security Strategies (JSS) announce a new micro-grant program for body-worn cameras (BWC) for small, rural, and tribal law enforcement agencies. 

Eligible law enforcement agencies include the following:

· All publicly funded law enforcement agencies with 50 or less full-time sworn officers or

· All publicly funded rural law enforcement agencies* or

· All Federally recognized tribal law enforcement agencies.*


*Agencies denoted with an asterisk (*) may have more than 50 sworn officers and remain eligible for the micro-grant program.

The on-line application for this grant program is user-friendly. It consists of 30 questions requiring yes/no answers, multiple choice answers with drop-down menus, brief narratives, and a budget.

Funds must be used to purchase body-worn cameras and may include expenses reasonably related to BWC program implementation. Funding can be used to support pilot BWC programs, establish new BWC implementation, or expand existing programs.

The micro-grant program is competitive. Grantees will be required to provide a 1:1 cash or in-kind match. For more information on the allowable costs and match requirements, please review the application instructions ( .

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on August 31, 2021. We anticipate that this will be a highly competitive solicitation, and applicants are strongly encouraged to apply and submit before the deadline.

About $7,650,000 is available, with 225 awards being made. 

The grant application is available at

Justice & Security Strategies, Inc. (JSS) is the organization that was selected by BJA to administer the micro-grant program. 

Please take note that this program is distinct from BJA’s FY 2021 Body-Worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program to Support Law Enforcement Agencies ( (BWCPIP). The micro-grant program is designed to better serve small, rural, and tribal law enforcement agencies. Agencies that do not fit the eligibility criteria for the micro-grant program being administered by JSS are encouraged to apply for BWCPIP. Small, rural, and tribal agencies can also submit an application through BWCPIP if they so choose, but should be aware that the application process is more detailed and demanding than the micro-grant process.
