Body Cam Research to be Presented At LEVA Conference

Research session will discuss challenges of long-term storage of body cam footage

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.– The Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association’s annual Video Evidence Training Symposium will feature a research presentation on the challenges of long-term storage of body cam footage.

Faculty from UCLA will present “Data Management of Video Evidence” featuring the same research presented at their own forum last month about the topic of storing body-cam footage. In addition to the overall challenges, the presenters will discuss both body-worn and in-car video capture, footage management and its release.

“By engaging experts from a number of disciplines, UCLA’s forum revealed some critical considerations that will prove tremendously useful to agencies which already have or are thinking of adopting body-worn camera systems,” says Jan Garvin, LEVA executive director.

Another LEVA seminar will explore best practices in major crime investigations involving video evidence. The speakers will provide tips on how investigators and police managers can learn about what type of social media posts, television coverage and other video sources could be beneficial to their casework.

The LEVA conference will also feature an image authentication workshop, audio forensic workshop and a forensic video workflow workshop. Pre-registration for the workshops are required as there is limited availability. The UCLA-hosted LEVA seminar will be held Tuesday, Nov. 15; the LEVA conference takes place Nov. 14-18 in Scottsdale, Ariz.
