Episode No. 49 Digital Images in Law Enforcement
Date: March 13, 2009
Notes: Stan Goldberg on Digital Imaging in Law
Stan Goldberg practically grew up in a black-and-white. As a young teenager in
Brookline, Massachusetts, Stan would ride with the police and got interested in Law Enforcement. Stan then started to take
pictures of accidents and fires and give them to police. Later, as his interest in police work and his talent for photography
grew, Stan went to Photography School and into the photographic supply business specializing in Law Enforcement.
While attending professional photo school in Boston in 1963, Stan took his favorite
photo of President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy had been in office for just about three years, and the young President had returned
to his home state of Massachusetts for a visit.
Stan caught Kennedy buttoning his overcoat as he left the presidential helicopter
and strode across the lawn to examine a site for the John F. Kennedy Library that would be built after his term in office
ended. It was a cold, rainy day but Kennedy was smiling broadly as he walked towards the waiting crowd. No one would have
guessed that in a little more than a month, the President would be dead at the hand of an assassin.
Stan’s interest in photography grew into a career as he worked his way up
in the camera business. But he never lost his love for police work. As the use of digital cameras grew, Stan began equipping
police departments with new digital imaging solutions, inventing and fabricating fingerprint adapters now being manufactured
Today, Stan is one of the leading experts
in helping Law Enforcement agencies work faster, better and more effectively with digital imaging solutions, and he manages
the first-ever division of Law Enforcement, medical and audio-visual integration for New England’s largest digital imaging
equipment retailer, Hunt’s Photo and Video (online at www.wbhunt.com). An associate member of the Massachusetts, Connecticut
and Rhode Island Chiefs of police, the New England Division of the International Association for Identification (NEDIAI),
and the 100 Club in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire, Stan has been instrumental in providing police throughout
the Northeast with a wide range of digital imaging products.
