Video and Policing Today

Build Video Literacy with the Investigator Training Course

Improve Your Agency’s Video Literacy

Video evidence is not the silent witness that ‘speaks for itself’; it carries the same potential for error as most eye witnesses. This course is critical for every investigator and prosecutor who touches video on its way from the crime scene to the court room. Thanks to our innovative online platform, law enforcement professionals get hands-on experience interrogating video from real cases as they learn best practice for investigating video evidence efficiently and effectively.

Improve Video Literacy with the Video Examinations course for Investigators

“The structure of this course was perfect for a virtual class. Having the lab assistants was great and allowed for immediate feedback and response to issues. I think many police officers prefer in-person classes (I certainly do), but this was the best, most interactive virtual class format I have taken. Well done!”
