Session: Analyzing Video Evidence: Common Errors in Interpretation
October 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Presented By: Brandon Wahl, CFVT
As the proliferation of surveillance cameras continues around the world, there is a common misconception that the evidence generated by these systems should speak for itself and be a “silent witness” for the trier of fact. In this lecture, certified forensic video analyst Andrew Fredericks will guide attendees through common misunderstandings about video evidence and highlight case examples where “simply pressing play” led to inaccurate perceptions. Special focus is given to a recent Use of Force case that led to a homicide trial against a police officer – in large part because of a misinterpretation of video evidence.
