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.
