Pine Ridge Police Department Begins Using New Crime Scene Imaging Tool

Police in Pine Ridge are receiving additional assistance in mapping crimes with the new Leica 3D imaging machine. The new technology helps officers map out the scene of a crime or accident in fine detail.

Images created by the machine will assist the police department in presenting evidence to prosecutors and jurors alike.

Previously the police department made use of 2D imaging software. The state-of-the-art Lecia machine creates 3D recreations of crime scenes.
