The UT Law Enforcement Innovation Center (LEIC) recently delivered a 40-hour course of instruction, Digital Photography for Law Enforcement, hosted by the Seattle Police Department. The course covered the basic and advanced photographic techniques required to document crime scenes and accident scenes for court presentation. Topics included: functions and controls of digital single-lens-reflex (DSLR) cameras, depth of field and motion control, close-up photography, functions and controls of detachable flash units and solving lighting problems using fill-flash.
The course was attended by 24 officers representing police departments from Seattle, Mercer Island, Medina, and Lakewood, Wash. The instructors were members of the National Forensic Academy™ faculty, John Williams and Kerri McClary. Mike Hill, LEIC program manager, accompanied the instructors and provided logistical support for the training. The course is one of several LEIC course offerings supported and fully-funded by a grant from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). ■
