Digital video evidence is coming at law enforcement agencies hard and fast, and both the pace and quantity of digital video evidence continue to increase exponentially. There are so many digital video sources, each with unique challenges and issues when it comes to proper evidence collection, viewing, interpreting, presentation and management of the evidence. Training is critical for all of those involved in the entire chain of evidence, especially in a field or discipline that is constantly changing and evolving.
If you’re involved in the digital video evidence chain, below are a few training events that I’ll be at next month that you may find interesting. Hope to see you there!Discuss this article in the forums (0 replies).
I was out in Tacoma, WA last week to teach our DVR Assessment & Video Recovery course, and to provide a free seminar on Digital & Multimedia Evidence for area prosecutors, law enforcement and support staff. It was a really great class, and as always the group discussions during both the class and the seminar were really interesting and informative. Thank you to everyone who attended for their participation, and many thanks to Kim, Chris, and the entire Tacoma Police Department for being such amazing hosts.
If you missed the free seminar, we’ll be back out that way to provide it again on July 8th at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center, in cooperation with the Washington State Homicide Investigators Association (WHIA).
If you’re interested in our DVR Assessment & Video Recovery training course, check out our upcoming training dates and locations or contact us to inquire about hosting one of our training events.
Thanks again everyone. Be safe out there my friends!Discuss this article in the forums (1 replies).
Wrapping up my weekend and feeling pretty good about the things I ticked off my internal, MFT-like to-do list. Implemented SSL encryption for the new LEVA website, integrated Authorize.net secure payment processing on the new LEVA site, and I put the finishing touches on several of the pieces for this week’s DCCTV recovery training in Tacoma, WA.
I probably won’t be posting here much this week, but you can’t shut me up on Facebook and Twitter, because I share to those while reading my news and researching (i.e. always). It is now an instinctual process and, thanks to those of you who occasionally send feedback, one that makes me feel good. No cute animal pics though; I share those to my personal Facebook friends, because animals are cute…but not really related to digital & multimedia evidence.
Okay, done rambling. Hope you had a great weekend my friends, and here’s to another week of doing what we love. Be safe out there. All the best.Discuss this article in the forums (0 replies).
