New Imaging Tool Will Help Reno Police Investigate Car Accidents


The Reno Police Department is training officers on brand new imaging equipment that will help reconstruct car accidents. Our contributor Luiza Vieira has the story.

The technology will provide high-precision 3D images and measurements that Officer Broadway says will help officers to better investigate car crashes and crime scenes.

“It will allow for a more clear and concise testimony for accident investigators to show a court the actions that transpired up to collision," Broadway explains.

Broadway says the equipment will also shorten traffic delays and increase security in the community:

“By having more officers out on the street versus having to secure a crash scene or a crime scene, they will be out there to better protect the community.”

The equipment was provided by the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety through a $ 65,000 grant.
