From Crime Scene to Courtroom

Capture the scene, digitally preserve the evidence, analyze and present the data with FARO’s 3D technology.

Capture & Analyze Bullet Hole

Capture, Analyze and Deliver

With a FARO® Laser Scanner at the crime scene, you can capture much more data in less time than it takes with old-fashioned measurement methods. Set up the scanner and push the button to record all your measurements so you can focus on investigating the scene. In the courtroom, digitally bring the jury to the scene with a compelling walk-through in the 3D point cloud.

Piece Together Forensic Evidence Digitally

In the lab, use the FARO Forensic ScanArm to capture a permanent, digital, representation of forensic evidence, such as skeletal remains. The ScanArm’s highly accurate, non-contact scanning capability ensures that data can be collected without the risk of damaging fragile evidence. Special software converts the scan data into a 3D model which can be used to obtain accurate measurements and even be printed using a 3D printer.

A Better Way to Document Crime Scenes

“One of the things I was tasked with doing was to find a better way to document our crime scenes,” commented Criminalist Brian Wangler, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. Wangler explains why he chose the FARO Focus Laser Scanner and how he applies the scanner to capture data at crime scenes, obtain measurements, analyze bullet trajectories, and match vehicle damage.

New! FocusS 350, 150, and 70 Laser Scanners

Capture Scenes in Half the Time

Use the FAROS Laser Scanner to capture a 3D representation of any scene, exactly how it was at the time of the scan. Everything the laser can “see” is recorded as data points. You can use this point cloud to digitally take measurements, create diagrams, animate scenes, and present “walk-throughs” that are ideal for court room presentations.

  • Ideal for interior and exterior scenes, in bright sunlight or in complete darkness
  • Obtain photographs of the entire scene using the integrated HDR color camera
  • Light weight and extremely portable, only 9.3 lbs ( 4.2 kg), including the battery
  • Dust and weather resistance with an extended operating temperature range
