November 18 – 22, 2024

PREREQUISITE:  Must have successfully completed the LEVA Level 1 course.  LEVA membership is NOT required.

NOTEWORTHY: Following successful completion of the Level 1 and 2 LEVA courses, maintaining a current LEVA membership and performing video processing for at least one year, the student will receive LEVA certification as a Forensic Video Technician. Certification remains valid for three years and is renewable.

Upon successful completion of Level 2, students will receive a complimentary LEVA membership valid until the end of the next calendar year. Refer to the LEVA By-Law sections III and XVI for information regarding membership.

Course Overview:

The LEVA Level 2 course builds on the concepts of the LEVA Level 1 course. The public expectation today is that if a crime occurs, there will be video/audio of the incident. There is a significant, specific skill set that investigators need to PROPERLY handle and process the digital multimedia evidence that gets collected. If the DME is not handled and processed carefully, according to best practices, the video/audio might not be interpreted accurately. This course exposes students to more advanced theory and hands-on techniques that conform to the Best Practices for the Acquisition and Processing of Digital Multimedia Evidence (DME).

Location: Kansas City Regional Police Academy, 6885 N.E. Pleasant Valley Rd., Kansas City, MO 64119

Instructors include: Detective Dean Brown, Detective M.T. Brown, Chris Andreacola, Jonathan Hak, KC., PhD.
