Critical Incident Response Team

Beginning in the mid '90s, the University of Georgia Police Department established a team of highly trained investigators who respond to serious crime and crash scenes for the purpose of investigating and precisely mapping those scenes. By mapping these scenes, these investigators are able to gather valuable information that will allow them to more readily find people responsible for perpetrating these crimes. The investigators on this team attend a minimum of eight different accident investigation and reconstruction courses taught through the Georgia Public Safety Training Center, as well as quarterly training sessions. They currently employ the use of a Laser Technology Inc. measuring system that allows them to measure crash and crime scenes down to the inch and reproduce those scenes down to the inch and reproduce those scenes in to-scale diagrams for later use.
