Legal Sciences has announced its Digital Training Library on Crash Reconstruction is now available. The Digital Library includes video presentations by Prof. John Kwasnoski and selected other nationally-recognized experts along with numerous downloadable pdf documents and published papers. Collision investigation and reconstruction concepts are explained in easy-to-understand language, without the math, a trademark of Prof. Kwasnoski’s national training programs. He is Professor Emeritus of Forensic Physics at Western New England University after 31 years on the faculty, and he has trained and presented to prosecutors and law enforcement on more than 300 occasions in the last 30 years. He is one of the authors of the Lethal Weapon course for prosecutors developed by NHTSA and the National District Attorneys Association, and regularly trains with the NYPD Highway Division for the past ten years. He has instructed at State Police and municipal academies, is post-certified in many states, and has taught in CLE programs across the nation.
The topics in the Digital Library are presented in “Volumes”, which are broken down into “Chapters” (approximately 20 minutes each in length) for easy access to a desired topic and convenient viewing. The initial launch of the Library contains approximately 15 hours of presentations, and each quarter there will be three or more hours added at no additional charge.
An Invaluable Resource
The Library is an invaluable resource for prosecutors who are preparing a case with their investigator or reconstructionist, and for law enforcement witnesses to help them prepare to explain their work to the jurors; the presentations contain innumerable examples of presenting MV crash testimony in a “plain speak” style that helps develop rapport with jurors. A Document Library section contains many downloadable pdf documents that are mentioned in the video presentation, and can then be immediately accessed for further learning or use at trial. The Digital Library is subscription-based, and offers unlimited viewing for a nominal annual fee. Several states have bulk-purchased subscriptions for prosecutors and law enforcement, and some agencies have used forfeiture funds or small grants to purchase bulk subscriptions for officers in their agencies.
