How to become a CCTV Analysis Expert Witness for Foresight

In today’s society, there aren’t many places a person can go without being caught on CCTV. Whether it’s a trip to the supermarket, pub, or simply walking down the street, there is usually a camera on every corner.

With this rise in technology and the demand for surveillance, CCTV cameras have become routinely available and are a fantastic source of evidence for a variety of case types. We’re taking a closer look at CCTV analysis, why it’s important and how you can join our leading Expert Panel as a CCTV Analysis Expert Witness.

Why is CCTV Analysis important?

‘The camera cannot lie’ is a widely known phrase, however, the way video and images are captured can have a drastic impact on how people interpret what they see. Sometimes, this can lead to incorrect conclusions. This is why CCTV analysis is vital in criminal cases when footage and images are submitted as evidence. Camera makes and models vary just as much as file formats, requiring an expert witness to interpret and make sense of the video.
