This course is approved for IAI Crime Scene Certification Continuing Education/Professional Development Credits for recertification (not application). In 2012, the Forensic Mapping System course was P.O.S.T. approved in California through the Citrus Heights Police Department. It was the first and still currently the only approved course in California.
We also offer a class annually hosted by Anaheim Police Department that is P.O.S.T. approved.
Course Description: This five-day, 40-hour course teaches the field investigator the skills necessary to put this effective system into use as simply as possible whether it's a crime scene or collision scene.
The course starts with the background and theory behind the Forensic Mapping System. This will allow attendees to provide foundational testimony to ensure their scale diagrams are admitted as evidence. In addition to mapping roadway and interior scenes attendees will get an introduction to mapping vehicle damage profiles and crush using the total station. Each day will end with attendees going through the "download" process to get their scene from their data collector into the drawing program.
Note: The course tuition includes a copy of Fundamentals of Forensic Mapping. For more details about the book click here or visit Kinetic Energy Press.
