In response to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 LEVA Digital Multimedia Evidence Training Symposium has been converted from a live event to a series of online training sessions. Now called VirtuaLEVA 2020, the 31st annual symposium of the Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Associational will be delivered via Zoom Pro from October 26-30, with recorded sessions accessible until April 1, 2021.
Over the five-day virtual conference, more than 20 sessions will cover a variety of technologies and techniques related to forensic video and audio analysis. According to Garvin, VirtuaLEVA has already registered attendees from 15 states, as well as Canada, England, Sweden, Norway, and Australia.
LEVA membership is not required to attend VirtuaLEVA 2020, but classes can earn hours toward LEVA certification. LEVA members that attend all live workshops and recorded sessions can accrue 46 training hours (or 39.5 hours if they only attend recorded sessions).
