L-Tron is proud to announce that attendees of our Forensic Photography Training course will now receive ACTAR and IAI credits

NYSTARS forensic Photography Course


The Forensic Photography Review & Introduction to Spherical Imaging course has been approved for 7.0 ACTAR continuing education credits and 7 hours of training toward initial crime scene certification and forensic photography certification under the International Association for Identification (IAI). The course is also eligible for IAI CEU’s for re-certification.

The Forensic Photography Review & Introduction to Spherical Imaging course is a full day training focusing on photography as your primary forensic documentation tool. The training encourages officers to better control their DSLR cameras and to break out of auto-mode. L-Tron is pleased the course will provide the added value of ACTAR and IAI credits to Police officers pursuing these certifications.

Topics covered during the training include:
  • Exposure Values
  • Camera Settings
  • Crime Scene Procedures
  • Macro Photography
  • An Introduction to Spherical Imaging and OSCR360

“Too often in forensic work, whether on crash scenes or crime scenes, we find images that don’t capture the details needed for investigation, and ultimately trial. We’ve discovered most lesser-quality images are a result of over-reliance on automatic camera settings.”

– Andrew McNeill, Deputy Sheriff (Ret.), MFS, ACTAR, CSCSA
