40 students completed LEVA’s Level 1 “Forensic Video Analysis & the Law” course in Honolulu, Hawaii, February 13-17.
The Honolulu Police Department requested the 40-hour course for their staff to gain proficiency in accepted best practices of retrieving digital multimedia evidence (DME). Using LEVA’s mobile lab, students were provided a fundamental understanding of DME, introduced to the types of systems likely to be encountered, discussed legal issues related to DME, and focused on the proper recovery of DME.
The HPD faces the across-the-board challenges of retrieving video evidence from sources, such as, DVRs, cell phones and, very soon, body-worn camera systems.
LEVA’s instruction team consisted of Dean Brown, M.T. Brown, Keith Swanson, Jonathan Hak, and Amy Hak. Logan Brown contributed to coordinating many of the on-site administrative requirements during the week.
HPD Lt. Dave Barnett said the course was “exceptional and beyond expectations”. Discussions are underway to conduct other LEVA classes in Honolulu.Add a comment
