The photographic compilation of the animal cruelty case should provide a permanent record of the scene and even more importantly, tell the story. Your photography will compliment your narratives and support your case, but only if done properly. This webinar will cover the basic rules of crime scene photography and overcoming photographic challenges to present images that achieve your goals. You will learn appropriate crime scene photographic and processing approaches, proper investigative photography of impounded animals, injuries and wounds, and necropsies, and become even more proficient at ensuring your evidence is admissible in court. The goal is to put together a case that you are proud to submit to your prosecutor and one they will confidently carry forward with a successful prosecution. Note: Due to the nature of this webinar, we cannot avoid showing some photos of abused/neglected animals. This webinar will benefit investigators (law enforcement, animal control and humane investigators), prosecutors, veterinarians, and shelter staff.
