Paper Abstract

In January 1972 the Baltimore County Police Department had the opportunity to work jointly with Westinghouse Electric Corporation in a matter of a criminal investigation concerning a series of burglaries. This cooperative effort represented a breakthrough for local law enforcement in dealing with agencies outside the government for it gave evidence that resources previously unavailable, could be brought to bear on the crime problem and that the scientific community was prepared to lend whatever support was necessary to help stem the spiraling crime rate.
