You have been called to investigate a bank robbery that took place

during the banks normal operating hours. Once on scene you are told that a person came into the occupied bank, displayed a hand gun and forced one of the bank tellers at gun point to open her cash drawer. The teller complied with the suspect, the suspect then took all of the money in the cash drawer, fired a shot from their handgun into the ceiling and fled the bank. 
Crime stoppers notified you that they were given a partial vehicle tag number and a possible age of the suspect. Identify and discuss two databases you could use to try and determine who the suspect is. Give a brief overview of the databases that you would use and discuss why you choose these databases in particular and what exactly they provide that will help to narrow your search for the suspect.

Step-by-step explanation

A database is a logically ordered set of data that is typically stored and accessed electronically via a computer system. Where databases are more complex, systematic design and analysis techniques are often used.

Forensics Database is a branch of forensic digital science that deals with forensic studies of datasets and their related metadata. It shows the typical forensic procedure and applies investigation techniques to the content and location information of the database.



A distributed database consists of two or more files in various sites. The processors on each site are connected via a network and have no configuration for multiple processors. Data is physically processed and autonomously handled all over numerous locations. Logical integration of the data is a central distributed database administration system (DDBMS).

Transaction processing is included in dispersed data bases, but is not associated with transaction processing.



A relationship database is a database type that uses a structure to identify and decrypt messages for another data segment in the database. Data are often structured into related tables.

A relational database management system (RDBMS) is a system that helps a relational database to be created, updated and managed. The SQL language is used to access the database in most data structures.


 operational database

Inside this database is stored information about the operations of an enterprise. Such databases are needed in functional lines such as marketing, relationships with employees, customer service, etc.


Personal Database

Data are collected and stored in small and easily manageable personal computers. The information is usually used by the same office of an organization and is available to a small group of persons to track individuals who have carried out the laws.


I would use relational database


It ensures scalability

 New data can be added regardless of the records already available. It helps investigators to feed into relevant information that may relate to identification and identification of unknown offenders through the creation of and establishment of columns within the database. It would make sure that each independent existing record of matches obtained would be modified through the tables and columns.

It promotes accuracy

Only once data is stored and data deduplication is eliminated. With the separate independent record investigators, data stored previously would accurately be guaranteed to not match the newly collected data, and it would help with recovering initial data to prevent duplication.


The management of data using a relational database allows us to become strategic users of data that we have thereby help us to reduce the number of perpetrators of legislation as regards bank robbers to a limited extent. We often need to use and re-sort data for different purposes, as in the case of suspects' search, as it makes it possible to bring infringements of the law.


Identification and classification - The examination of physical evidence by competent criminal investigators, often commences with the testing of a substance to help find and prove real suspects and to classify it. The independent record helps to scale individual perpetrators who have committed the crimes and thus have committed the crimes against them.


Reconstruction / Corrosion - Reconstruction helps investigator and prosecutor hypothesize the order of events, their relative position and the way the crime has developed. By carefully examining the event and the order of the events, the investigators can truly construct all suspects of violations of the rule of law.
