• Human memory vs. electronic recording: Why the two may differ dramatically and the implications of that reality during force investigations.

• The impact of lighting, camera angle, and frame rate on recordings of fast-moving events.

 

• Recommendations and timing considerations related to whether officers should view video of their encounters before submitting to formal interviews.

 

• Technology and techniques that can help agencies “flesh out” two-dimensional video footage in an effort to present the most realistic picture of an officer’s sensory experience during a high-stress, rapidly unfolding force encounter.

 

• Don’t just push play: Tips for appropriately presenting and positioning footage of a filmed force encounter in a manner that helps maximize understanding of the realities of human performance.

 

• Professional media relations guidance on best practices for handling seemingly controversial but potentially misunderstood footage.
