Technology and Training Advances Police Work

Officers Ellis and Knight took part in a BOSCH Crash Data Retrieval Technician’s course this week. In the class, officers learned how to use an Event Data Recorder (EDR) to image a crash, and pre-crash data, to fully understand the accident.

An EDR is a commercially available tool to retrieve information such as vehicle speed, brake status, crash severity, seat belt status, engine throttle, airbag deployment data and occupant detection information.

EDR reports have a proven track record of admissibility in both civil and criminal cases.
