Basic Crash Investigation – 2 weeks

This course is the basic training that will teach officers the proper techniques for recognizing and properly recording damage that occurs when motor vehicles collide. It also covers gathering critical evidence that may be used to reconstruct a crash at a later date. Related topics include information from people, roads and vehicles. This course is designed for new officers or officers assigned to a traffic bureau. There are some basic math formulas taught and officers enrolled should have basic algebra skills and will need a scientific calculator.
