Incident Scene Videography

2 Day Workshop

We live in a society of instantaneous information. Each day, news is brought to us in the form of video on our televisions and computers. Public agencies have learned that video is an effective tool that can capture and maintain the attention of our audience as we present our story. However, if we shoot bad video, then we may as well not shoot video at all.

It will provide the investigator with a solid understanding of the role played by the proper application of video in various types of investigations.
