Course Overview:

The increased use of digital video systems by the general public has made digital multimedia evidence (DME) a significant and integral part of modern criminal and civil investigations. Since there is no standard video recording system in use, the need for trained individuals who know how to properly recover this type of evidence has increased. Properly acquiring DME is crucial, as all other processes or use of the video is impacted by accuracy of the recovery. This course introduces and provides a fundamental understanding of DME, introduces the types of systems likely to be encountered, discusses legal issues related to DME, and focuses on the proper recovery of DME. Level 1 prepares first responders such as officers, detectives, and crime scene investigators who may be responsible for collecting video evidence with the strong foundation needed for the correct recovery of the evidence along with methods for accurately disseminating information derived from the recovered video. This class is also the first step for those students pursuing the Certified Forensic Video Technician (CFVT) or Certified Forensic Video Analysts (CFVA) certification and prepares the students for advanced classes in the field.

Course Overview

Video evidence has come to play an important role in nearly all criminal investigations, yet the lack of understanding digital video and inability to easily playback files often hampers investigative efforts. Designed for case detectives and investigators with little to no digital video training, this class will give insight into how digital video works and provide skills to quickly and effectively use video footage as part of a successful criminal investigation. It will also introduce investigators to more advanced analysis/clarification opportunities and allow them to effectively communicate with forensic and technical personnel. 

Topics include digital video and courtroom admissibility, video playback and appearance, image enhancement and forensic video awareness, and special considerations for new technologies.

Who Should Attend?

This three-day course is specifically designed for experts (and experts in training) in ANY area of expertise. Specific examples and moot court practice will focus on the areas of expertise represented by course participants.

Overview

An expert witness is a person with expertise in a particular field that exceeds the knowledge level of the trier of fact and who applies that expertise in a legal setting. Becoming an expert witness in any field is a significant accomplishment. It means that through your education, training and experience you have gained knowledge in a particular field of endeavor that is superior to that of the trier of fact.

From both a criminal and civil trial perspective, it is essential that a forensic expert be able to communicate that vital information in an effective and compelling manner so as to maximize its value. The ability to do that is rarely innate and is something that can be learned and practiced. This course is designed to teach experts how to become effective expert witnesses.

This highly rated course is dynamic and combines lectures, demonstration and moot court practice.
