When fatal vehicle accidents occur, as an investigator, you need to document the scene, record and collect evidence, take measurements and map the scene for accident reconstruction.
During your investigation, the road can be closed down for several hours delaying motorists and affecting businesses that rely on that roadway. It's imperative that you are able to work efficiently to properly investigate the scene and get the road opened back up.
In this article, we’ll examine the pain points of investigators working on dark roadways and how different types of lights can help investigators work easier, faster, and safer.
Needs and Pain Points
Your team needs to work efficiently! Time is money, and when a road is closed for an investigation, it is costly to businesses, the city, and the department.
You need to be independent. If you are relying on other officers or departments for lighting, your efforts are compromised when they need to leave the scene, taking your lighting with them.
The accident scene is potentially large. A major traffic accident investigation can span anywhere from several hundred feet to a mile in distance. You need to be able to move all of your equipment across the scene.
Weather is unpredictable. When inclement weather comes in, you have the added stress of keeping your cameras and measuring tools dry and clean while you continue to process the scene.
Your investigation team is small. Investigation teams are often 1-2 person teams, so it is essential that you can transport and manage all of your equipment around an accident scene with ease.
