September 28 , 7:00–9:30 pm “Crime Reduction through Crime Analysis” with Professor Paul J. Brantingham Crime is a leading issue for many communities in the south Fraser Valley region and crime reduction a top priority of Mayors and Municipal Governments. New models of policing and crime reduction have been emerging as the result of criminal analysis. Professor Paul Brantingham, a recognized and leading international expert in this field will present an engaging and highly educational talk on how the University is working with local authorities to reduce crime and make our communities safer and more secure for residents of all ages. Dr. Paul Brantingham is Professor and holder of the RCMP Chair in Crime Analysis at Simon Fraser University. He also is Co-Director of the Institute for Canadian Urban Research Studies Laboratory. Dr. Brantingham has been involved in crime analysis and crime prevention for more than 30 years and is known for developing many of the key concepts in crime prevention and crime analysis now used in crime reduction strategies around the world. October 12, 7:00–9:30 pm “Murder & Maggots” and “Bugs & Bones” with Dr. Gail Anderson and Dr. Lynne Bell Murder and Maggots: Dr. Anderson’s presentation will illustrate the use of forensic entomology in homicide investigations. She will explain how insects can be used to estimate elapsed time since death, whether the body has been moved or disturbed, the position of wounds, and length of time of neglect in living victims, as well as its use in poaching. A brief description of recent research on marine discussion will also be included. Warning: this presentation will include decomposed bodies and is not for the squeamish. Not recommended for children. Dr. Gail Anderson is an Associate Professor in the Criminology department at Simon Fraser University. Her major research interests include forensic entomology, the use of insects in death investigations. The only full-time forensic entomologist in Canada, Dr. Anderson is internationally known for her pioneering work and actively handles forensic death cases for the BC Coroners Service, the RCMP and City Police with whom she has been involved in over 130 homicide investigations. A Nautical Mystery Solved? The Mary Rose warship sank suddenly in calm shallow waters on a sunny day under the gaze of Henry VIII as she approached the French Fleet for battle. Virtually all hands were lost. The reasons remain elusive and endure as an unsolved mystery. Her sinking was a medieval mass fatality equivalent to the loss of a large aircraft carrier and in monetary terms close to the same. New ‘forensic’ work helps us look deeper into the identities of all the Kings men, and understand what went fatally wrong on that day. Dr. Lynne Bell is an Associate Professor within the School of Criminology at Simon Fraser University. She specializes in forensic applications of mass spectrometry to problems concerning human identification. She has a particular interest in understanding and identifying where people lived during particular periods during their lifetimes. This type of ‘geographic tracking’ information can be used as a means of refining missing persons searches.
