The team returns from Gettysburg, PA after the 2017 PA State Police Conference on Traffic Reconstruction
OSCR360 & our team returned this week from the 2017 PA State Police Conference on Traffic Reconstruction. This year’s conference was held in Gettysburg, PA for the first time, after being held for multiple years in State College, PA.
The Traffic Reconstruction Seminar attracts over 350 attendees, and is free to active Law Enforcement reconstructionists. The 2017 PA State Police Conference ran from Tuesday, October 31st through Thursday, November 2nd.
OSCR traveled to the conference along with Juli, Alex and Chuck. The team was excited to see all of the crash demos, and was able to use OSCR360 to take several shots of the crashes, and organize DSLR still photos of the scene within the OCSR software for a more accurate and comprehensive presentation of the scene.
