L-Tron is pleased to announce that their OSCR360 team will be attending the upcoming National District Attorneys Association Summer Summit in Denver, CO from July 18 – 19, 2022. Geared toward prosecutors and investigators, this year’s annual NDAA Summit will focus on “The Evolution of the Digital Prosecutor.” Educational sessions will focus on digital evidence, forensics, body worn cameras, case management, and other digital tools that are relevant in the modern courtroom.
The L-Tron team has returned from a successful trip to the annual Chesapeake Bay Division’s IAI Educational Conference in Gettysburg, PA. L-Tron’s John Dobies and Julianne Pangal attended the 2022 CBD IAI Conference, demo-ing OSCR360 to attendees. Dobies was also given the opportunity to speak as a conference presenter on the final day of the conference.
OSCR360 was recently spotted in the Weatherford, Texas news, following a joint purchase between three of the community’s local criminal justice agencies. Parker County District Attorney’s Office, Parker County Sheriff’s Office, and Weatherford Police Department teamed together to share costs and equipment. This has brought cutting-edge investigative technology to all three agencies. OSCR360 will be used at crime scenes, crash scenes, and in the courtroom to aid in the criminal justice process.
For Detective Stallings and his team, OSCR360 easily brings them back to the scene, which had previously been difficult to accomplish with still photographs.
Now, they are able to drop OSCR in the middle of a room and, just a few moments later, have an interactive 360-view to revisit and share with others. Detective Stallings also explained that OSCR software features such as automatic GPS point plotting and overlaying floorplans are integral tools that his team appreciates.

The question of courtroom admissibility is a hot topic – and for good reason. Prosecutors require strong evidence to obtain a conviction, whereas defense attorneys are seeking a “not guilty” verdict, or better yet, the case dismissed. When evidence gets thrown out by the court, it’s a huge win for the defense.
When it comes to admitting digital and photographic evidence into a courtroom to be used in a criminal case, there are four criteria each piece of evidence must meet: accuracy, authenticity, originality, and relevancy.
L-Tron is pleased to announce that its OSCR360 Capture Kit and Software have been featured in the “Investigations Product Guide” section of the April 2021 edition of OFFICER Magazine, an Officer.com publication. The section highlights four investigative tools that were selected by editors, beginning with the intuitive OSCR360 system.
Lighting is one of the most crucial elements of forensic photography.
