Video Fundamentals for Jails and Correctional Facilities

Video Fundamentals for Jails and Correctional Facilities

A Webinar Wednesday Course


Course Overview

Use the power of video to document crime scenes!

This course builds upon the Introduction to Video for Investigators course offered by Law Enforcement Video LLC.

This virtual session explores the use of camcorders, DSLRs, and mirrorless cameras and associated technology to document illicit activity within jails and correctional facilities. The course will cover the use of video to document intake, interviews, contraband concealment, assaults, injuries, cell rushes, cell searches, and custodial interrogations.

Macro videography (extreme close-up shots) and scale rulers are emphasized heavily for recording fine detail. An overview of Alternate Light Sources and barrier filters will familiarize students with recording trace evidence of street drugs and human serology.
