Laser Scanning for Forensics and Public Safety

Leverage the power of point clouds for disaster recovery, security planning, scene investigation, border patrol, route mapping and more.

Public Safety

The safety of the public depends on your ability to accurately and quickly document scenes and communicate the important facts to your colleagues and the public.

Too often, the field and the office are out of sync, with Leica Geosystems' solution for public safety, information flows seamlessly from on-site investigators to colleagues in the office in real-time. Simply scan, process and publish to create visual walk throughs and ensure you are capturing everything you need the first time.

The Leica Geosystems solution prevents personnel from reentering a crime scene, providing another barrier against scene contamination and ensuring you have what you need to analyse the scene and deliver compelling evidence. Our solutions cover an array of unique tasks with the highest accuracy and provide the most qualified court-ready documentation. Partnering with police departments and investigative units, we support this critical work with solutions, from laser scanners to incident mapping software.
