A peek into policing practices Image

By Sunny Liu

A new exhibition has recently been opened at the Victoria Police Museum, featuring the portraits of suspects and crime-scene technologies.

Trace: The Secrets Behind Police Technologies showcases the fascinating police suspect-identification technologies and road-policing devices.  

Trace reveals a range of old and current techniques that the police use, including Morse code and advanced facial recognition.

Amber Evangelista is the co-curator of the exhibition and says the exhibition has a “special appeal to curious minds”.

“The stories, documents and objects reveal some of the mysteries behind police technologies, with a real emphasis on how these gadgets and devices work,” Ms Evangelista said.

The exhibition also includes some interactive elements that can be enjoyed by visitors from all age groups.

The detection techniques widely used in crime investigations illustrates how the police find valuable evidence to solve crime in new and groundbreaking ways.

The exhibited devices and technologies have influenced the historical and modern policing practices and also gives some directions and hints about the future technologies for crime prevention and detection.

This is the first exhibition about policing practices and offers some great insights into how police officers carry out their daily tasks.

Trace is a free exhibition will be on display at the Victoria Police Museum until June next year.

The museum also has another current exhibition, Behind The Badge, which features the photographic portraits and personal stories of 10 women currently serving in Victoria Police.
