VIDEO: The North Richland Hills Police and Fire Departments showed off new technology Thursday they say will allow them to do their jobs more effectively and in less time.
Jennie Espy, a North Richland Hills Police Department Crime Scene Investigator said, “This is absolutely fantastic technology.”
The state-of-the-art device scans everything in its site — 360 degrees — and provides 3D photographs of a crime scene, major crash or an arson fire.
It’s so accurate, even if there’s a missed measurement, investigators can take another measurement by going back into the 3D scene.
“If we needed to take this to court, we could really walk you around the crime scene as if you were there,” said Espy.
The technology also helps crash and traffic investigators save time because they no longer have to manually measure everything at a scene.
