Police detectives and investigators use crime scene mapping to produce diagrams of scenes such as shootings, murders and serious traffic crashes. A scale diagram can then be used to assist in taking measurements and enhancing testimony in court.
The 3D laser scanners will allow ballistics experts, bloodstain analysts, crash investigators and other specialists to provide more information to attorneys, judges and juries and better articulate the findings of their investigations. It will also allow police to provide a virtual walk-through of crime scenes. And, of course, it's just plain cool.
If you're interested in crime scene technology or you're looking for ways to enhance your department's investigative capabilities, 3D laser scanner mapping technology may be right up your alley.
