Police department documents crime scenes with 3D scanner

1 Comment

The Roswell, New Mexico, police department just dropped $86,000 on 3D scanners that can capture 3D images of a crime scene, which can be used as evidence in court. The images are accurate down to a few millimeters. That’s a much higher resolution than the relatively cheap handheld and desktop scanners that have hit the market lately. Maybe someday the police department will even 3D print a crime scene. Watch the full report from KRQE below.

Laser Scanners have been used by Law Enforcement for a fairly long time.

I remember driving past a bad truck accident on a trip in 2008 and they were using a laser scanner to collect the scene.
