POPULAR FORENSIC SERVICES FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT:
We provide a range of services for law enforcement support.
Analog and digital evidence, such as audio or video, may offer valuable information to a case. These mediums can be unclear for multiple reasons and have background noise, blurriness and shakiness. With our technology, we can analyze the content and clarify it to make it more legitimate in court.
Authenticating and clarifying evidence are more helpful practices when paired with a solid presentation. We work with law enforcement to capture the notable qualities of a piece of evidence during a trial. Presentation design can include points to make in court and the device you display evidence on.
With the prevalence of closed-circuit television (CCTV) and digital video recorder (DVR) recordings, you may need to extract data from a storage device. Individuals can also damage or destroy these devices, making data recovery valuable. We’ll extract the footage you need without altering or losing it.
Expert reports and witnesses are indispensable in a court setting. We can provide scientific reports on the evidence we worked with to prove facts and findings. Our team can also act as expert witnesses to present information from a reliable source.
When you have a piece of media evidence, it may not always be compatible with multiple media platforms. This situation can make it hard to duplicate and distribute evidence. We can export and transcode media types, so they’ll work on multiple playback formats.
When you have an unknown subject in a photo or video, we can use digital media of your suspect to compare. This process can help you narrow down suspects and gather critical information.
If any form of media, such as audio or video, is dysfunctional or broken in some way, we can use our skills to repair it. We can also use industry best practices to duplicate content without affecting the evidence’s authenticity.
Law enforcement and forensics teams often confront similar operations in handling and documenting evidence. The Primeau Forensics team can present our range of services while also discussing best practices for evidence preservation and location recording. These forensic support practices for law enforcement will help your trial run smoothly.
Reverse projection is a forensic method used to measure objects or people in photographs. This process can help you discover if a suspect fits the criteria for an unidentified person in an image.
Surveillance data often plays a significant role in criminal cases and may even uncover the guilty parties. However, surveillance data isn’t always easy to understand or navigate. With scientific processing methods, we can uncover and clarify valuable information from a file, including dashcam footage.
