View On Demand (Recorded Oct. 6, 2020)

Video from body cameras, in-car recorders, bystanders and surveillance cameras has transformed the way the public understands and reacts to incidents involving law enforcement. Often, video is seen as irrefutable, objective evidence, valued above officer or eyewitness accounts.

The truth is much more complex. Video is subject to extensive limitations and vulnerable to manipulation. At the same time, video offers numerous benefits for agencies seeking to understand and explain officer actions and develop training materials.

This webinar will highlight technical and organizational factors law enforcement leaders must consider when evaluating video and using it to inform use of force investigations.

You’ll Learn:

  • Technical factors, such as compression and the perspective/angle, that can complicate the use of video as evidence
  • What involved officers, investigators and administrators should know about video evidence prior to going into an interview
  • Key questions to ask when analyzing incident video—and the value of using forensic experts in video analysis
  • How incident video can be useful as a training tool
