Digital Photography for Law Enforcement Level 2 (DPLE2)Up one level
The Digital Photography For Law Enforcement Level 2 (DPLE2) is designed for qualified law enforcement officers, criminal investigators, crime scene technicians, and civilians who have a fundamental understanding of digital photography.
From the afternoon of the first day of the training program students will go 'hands on', developing their knowledge, skill and proficiency in photography. To accomplish this each student is issued a complete digital SLR camera kit and fully licensed copy of Adobe Photoshop® Elements software that they will keep upon graduation. It is with this equipment, and software, that the students develop that proficiency during challenging, and often exciting, real world photographic assignments developed by the instructors.
These photographic assignments include crime scenes, close-up (examination type), investigative, and surveillance photographic assignments.
Upon completion of the exercises, the students will learn how to properly transfer and save the captured images for evidentiary use, enhance images were required utilizing such software as Adobe Photoshop® Elements, and ultimately prepare and print images for court presentation.
A portfolio of hundreds of printed photographs is created by the student, and will serve as a reference for years following the training opportunity.
Upon completion of the training the law enforcement student will return to their respective agency with the requisite knowledge and equipment necessary to professionally and properly document virtually any type of crime scene, physical evidence, or in progress criminal activity.
This program has been approved by the Crime Scene Certification Board of International Association for Identification (IAI) as meeting the requirements necessary for training and professional development towards crime scene certification.
