From law firms to law enforcement, technology has augmented the way professional investigators do their work. And so each year, Thomson Reuters and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) recognize a law enforcement agency, law enforcement unit, task force or inter-agency task force for innovation and excellence in the area of criminal investigations, specifically looking for cases where technology and traditional police work intersect.

Submissions for the 2016 IACP/Thomson Reuters Award for Excellence in Criminal Investigation are open now through May 20, and the winners will be announced during an award ceremony at the IACP 2016 Conference in San Diego on Oct. 18.

Last year’s winner was the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Detail, which was recognized for their investigation of the McStay family murder case that led to the arrest of a suspect who is now on trial. You can read more here.
