LEVA Conference Includes Free Video-Evidence Course

‘Video Essentials for First Responders’ course is an introduction to video evidence

The Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association is providing a free course — Video Essentials for First Responders — for attendees of its 2013 LEVA Digital Multimedia Evidence Training Symposium, which runs Sept. 9-13 in Asheville, N.C.
Scheduled for Sept. 10 and limited to 90 students, Video Essentials for First Responders is a daylong session designed as an introduction to video evidence for law enforcement officials, LEVA says. In addition, the one-day $195 conference fee is waived for guest attendees of the class.
“This is a great opportunity for new and returning attendees to receive valuable LEVA training for free,” said Det. Blaine Davison, of the Norman (Okla.) Police Department, who is also LEVA’s president. “Law enforcement budgets are tight, and some agencies can’t afford to send their people to get training. We’re hoping that by offering this class for free, it will allow those agencies to send officers or investigators to learn how to deal with surveillance-video images, which are the most prolific type of evidence in law enforcement.”
The conference will also offer a mix of workshops, case studies and seminars focused on forensic video and audio technologies, as well as on video production and editing, according to LEVA.
Other workshops and seminars scheduled for the conference include Forensic Image and Video Analysis, Courtroom Testimony for Forensic Video Analysis and Forensic Photography for International Association for Identification Forensic Certification, LEVA says. All the conference program sessions can be used toward LEVA certification, the organization adds.
