Crime Scenes

Have you ever wondered how crime scene investigations take place? You may have seen the Hollywood process on any of the numerous crime related shows on TV, but what do the REAL authorities do?

One way that the New York City Police Department is recording crime scenes is to take panoramic images of crime scenes, using the Panoscan camera. Some of these images have been posted online with an audio explanation of what has taken place. These images are real and are a tad gruesome, but are still excellent examples for a criminal investigations class.

On a lighter note, this would also be a great camera for vacation! :)
