Why invest in Video Evidence Training?
Video is the most prolific source of evidence available to police today – it is involved in 85% of all cases and it’s frequently featured in the news.
Despite being a vital source of evidence, very little training exists on how to review video evidence effectively and efficiently. In fact, the 2021 Video Evidence Trends Report found that 43% of Major Crimes Investigators who testified in court about video evidence had less than 10 hours of training!
Grant Fredericks, a certified Forensic Video Analyst and lecturer at the FBI National Academy, explained the importance of video training for police officers:
“While I was in the Police Academy, they taught us how to shoot a gun, use handcuffs, apply minimal force, testify in court, and write a police report, among other basic policing functions.
Today it’s still pretty much the same in most police academies throughout North America, but there is no video literacy training.
And yet, police officers will use video more than they use their gun, more than they use force or testify and they will likely even use video more than they use handcuffs. Video is more common to police work today than any of the other functions that are currently taught.”
Video is such a crucial part of modern investigations, and agencies simply cannot afford to get it wrong.
