2021 Video Evidence Training Symposium
Live Online Experience
March 22 – March 25, 2021
About the Event
Did you know that 85% of investigations involve some form of video evidence? From traffic collisions to police use of force incidents, every investigator should be equipped to properly interrogate video evidence from acquisition to the courtroom.
Join us this March for specialized training from leading video and law enforcement experts as they present the latest investigative techniques and technologies when it comes to video evidence. Each session will feature 90-minutes of high-quality content taught live by an industry expert at the top of their field.
Attendees will earn certificates demonstrating completed training hours for submitting CEUs on topics including important legal updates, workflow training, reconstruction techniques for using video evidence in collision investigations, and more.
