Forensic photography refers to photographs of a crime scene, accident, victim injuries, stolen property, and other places or things that aid in an investigation and court presentation. Examples of forensic photography are skid marks, damage to vehicles or machinery, damage to property, and personal injuries. Private investigators often are retained after the event, and photography is part of the investigation process to support civil litigation or criminal defense.
AT J&R Folino, LLC, Private Investigation Services, our investigators use various types of photographic equipment to develop evidence in civil and criminal cases including digital, video, and cell phone cameras, and when necessary smaller cameras for covert use such as button or key chain cameras. Also, stationary disguised motion cameras can be deployed in cases involving suspected employee theft or physical abuse. We create a professional photo and/or video log, based on the attorney’s requirements.
J&R understands the photographs and/or video evidence must follow the normal “chain of custody” to be admissible in court.
