Video Examinations for Police Investigators

Prepare yourself and your team for the growing body of video evidence available today with this updated version of the Investigator Course.


Video is the most prolific source of evidence available to police today, yet it is often technically challenging and is frequently misinterpreted when handled incorrectly.

This Video Examinations course exposes investigators to the latest techniques to accurately examine digital multimedia evidence for criminal investigations. Each section of the course focuses on both:

  • Specific technical limitations that investigators need to understand to properly handle and review video
  • Opportunities that investigators can leverage to get more out of their video evidence

Participants begin each section with a short, instructor-led overview of an investigative technique or issue before venturing into hands-on exercises from real-world Major Crime casework where video evidence played a critical role.

Through step-by-step exercises, students become proficient in best practice methods for interrogating video evidence and producing final observations, shot lists, and reports in preparation for charge approval and trial.

Investigators who successfully complete this course will improve their video literacy, gain an awareness of video evidence limitations, and become proficient in executing industry-standard investigative techniques while appreciating the need to “stay in their lane” and accepting when to seek help from an expert.
