Using 3D Laser Scanning to Document Crime Scenes

As reported in Vision Systems Design the Unified Police Department in the Salt Lake City area is using FARO Focus3D S laser scanners to capture scenes and preserve them for future analysis.

“This has taken us somewhere that we’ve never really been able to go before, and now we’re going there on every case,” he said. “Our cases are more detailed because of this,” Michael Anderson, Unified Police Department detective said in the Fox video. “They are more accurate, and we are producing a product that, quite frankly, we never could have envisioned that we would be producing in a law enforcement setting.”

Strong support for this technology. Someday it may be a requirement for all law enforcement agencies.
