Re-Affirming the use of Trace Data

A Maryland specific paper by the NCJRS states clearly what we've saying all along :

Trace Data in and of itself means nothing.

Taken with other, multiple, high risk indicators it may indicate further investigation is necessary.

That's it.

Apparently the concept is too difficult for Bryan Miller, Paul Helmke, et al. to grasp.

Unless of course they have an ulterior motive.

That's an interesting paper. Good find.

You can actually thank our good buddy JadeGold. He linked to it claiming "see see, they made statistics with trace data" when the paper specifically says it needs to be in conjunction w/ many other factors to even be considered.

They are their own worst enemy.
