So what will your evidence technicians take away from the refresher forensic photography course agenda?
End goal: get your crime scene pictures right the first time you take them.
This five-hour refresher forensic photography course will encourage and enable you to control your camera – instead of having your camera control you. Photography is often your primary forensic documentation tool. Topics we will cover include: camera settings, exposure values, crime scene procedures, & macro photography. The training will close with an introduction to the benefits of spherical imaging to integrate and relate traditional photography to other digital evidence for both investigations and courtroom presentations.
The course will be led by Sergeant (Ret.) Hank Kula and a current Sheriff’s Deputy, with a combined 46 years in Law Enforcement and experience in collision reconstruction, crime scene photography, crime scene analysis, and police instruction.
