Criminal Trial Attorney to Take the Main Stage at ESX Public Safety Luncheon

D. Miles Brissette to Debunk Myths Surrounding the Use of Surveillance Video in the Courtroom

April 19, 2017 – ESX, the event for professionals who are passionate about electronic security and life safety, has announced the main stage speaker for its Public Safety Luncheon. Miles Brissette, attorney for the Law Offices of Gill & Brissette and co-founder of the 3rd Chair Family of Companies: Digital Forensics, Technologies and Investigations will present how video surveillance evidence in the courtroom impacts criminal and civil cases.

The industry’s relationship with law enforcement is an important one. How can the electronic security and life safety industry do a better job of focusing on a video surveillance system that gathers the right evidence? ESX attendees will find out Friday, June 16 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn.

In his presentation, “Video Surveillance - Focusing on the Evidence,” Brissette will debunk the myths surrounding the use of video surveillance evidence in the courtroom. Forensic video evidence may exist, but that doesn’t mean it’s admissible at trial. He will highlight the requirements for presenting video evidence in the courtroom and show how attorneys must strategically present video evidence before the judge and jury.

Miles Brissette is a senior criminal trial attorney based in Fort Worth, Texas. He became a principle in the Law Offices of Gill & Brissette in 2015, after nearly two decades in the Tarrant County, Texas Criminal District Attorney’s Office.

He has investigated and litigated offenses ranging from simple thefts and DWIs to death penalty cases. He was a prosecutor in the high-profile case against Chante Mallard, a Fort Worth woman convicted in 2003 of striking a man with her car, driving home with him lodged in her windshield and leaving him to die.

As Chief Prosecutor of the Tarrant County Forensic and Technical Services Unit, Brissette oversaw investigation and prosecution of arson and explosives cases, as well as the office’s Regional Forensic Video Lab and the Electronic Case Management System.

Brissette’s understanding of fire science earned him an international reputation for successfully pursuing complex arson cases during a period where many questioned the field of fire science.

He holds a widely-recognized expertise in using technology to dissect the most complex litigation and discovery-intensive cases and works nationally to establish standards for the use of law enforcement video.

At this luncheon, ESX will honor deserving individuals with ties to public safety from important industry programs including the national winner of ESA’s Youth Scholarship Program. The Security Industry Alarm Coalition’s (SIAC) Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award and William N. Moody Award, as well as, TMA’s Public Sector Award will also be presented.

Security Sales and Integration magazine is the media sponsor of the ESX Public Safety Luncheon.

ESX will take place June 13-16 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn.
