LEVA Attendees Emphasize Value, Importance of Training at Conference

(MIDLOTHIAN, TEX.) – Despite tight training funds at many agencies, the Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association (LEVA) will attract an international group of video professionals for its 2013 LEVA Digital Multimedia Evidence Training Symposium, which runs Sept. 9-13 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Asheville, N.C. The five-day conference will offer a variety of hands-on workshops, case studies, and interactive seminars that focus on forensic video and audio technologies, as well as video production and editing tools. It is a unique combination that provides value for attendees.

“There is no question that law enforcement video professionals need training, but budgets often dictate whether they can attend the LEVA conference or other training programs,” said LEVA president Det. Blaine Davison, Norman, Oklahoma, Police Department. “We keep our tuition low so it’s less of a burden on those budgets, but we make sure the quality and quantity of training at our annual conference is unsurpassed. Our conference provides hands-on experience with today’s leading technologies, and helps departments establish better operating procedures.”

Budget restraints have kept Michael Bush of the Denver Police Department Crime Lab from attending in the annual conference in the past, but he is looking forward to this year’s workshops and networking opportunities. “There are many good workshops this year,” he said. “Of course, I am really looking forward to expanding my legal knowledge with Jonathan Hak’s ‘Courtroom Testimony for Forensic Video Analysts.’”

Thorbjörn Johansson will represent the Swedish National Bureau of Investigation Computer Crime Unit at the LEVA conference. “Cybercrime has a high position on the priority list of our police authority,” he explained, “and video forensics is interesting for us because during the last few years we have made an effort to develop this line of work within our authority. We have high expectations for this conference. I am convinced that we will benefit a great deal if we attend these lectures and listen to the presentations.”

LEVA will also offer a free introductory course, “Video Essentials for First Responders,” on Sept. 10. Registration is limited to 90 students, but attendees do not have to be LEVA members to attend. Many sessions throughout the conference have limited availability, and pre-registration is required. For travel information, as well as the conference schedule and pricing options, visit leva.org.
