About the Event

Video evidence continues to play an increasingly prominent role in investigations and court proceedings.

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.
