Early in 2016 LEVA migrated to an entirely online membership system.

However, "Offline" payment is still available for agencies requiring invoices before processing payment.

Invoices and receipts are auto generated after you submit your new application or renewal form.

Simply log-in and complete the Online Membership Renewal Form.

Choose "Offline Payment" for the payment method prior to submitting.

A PDF invoice will be made available to you via the "Membership History" menu option under "My Account".

When using "Offline Payment", your membership status will be marked "Pending" in our system until payment is received.

LEVA’s 27th Annual Video Evidence and Training Symposium ended Friday night, November 18, in Scottsdale, AZ.

Newly LEVA Certified Forensic Video Analysts were introduced: Christi Noebel, Dallas County District Attorney's Office, TX; Chris Stoddard, Vancouver Police Department, BC; Jake Blythe, Key Forensic Services, Coventry, England.

Not only were agencies and companies represented from across the US and Canada, but outside of North America as well. There were attendees from Switzerland, Sweden, England, Brazil and Nigeria.

Paul from the Geneva Police Department in Switzerland was singled out during the banquet. He brought 11 pounds of Swiss candy with him to share with his colleagues during the week. At the banquet, the favor was returned.  He was presented with three large Hershey bars. When he got back to his seat, he was called back to the podium four more times. Along with the Hershey bars, he ended up with five big bags of a variety of different "real" chocolate candy to take home and share with family, co-workers and the Swiss population. Included were Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Reeses, Babe Ruth, Twix, Butterfinger, Milky Way, Kit Kat, Nestles Crunch and a huge bag of M&Ms...the good stuff.

LEVA 2017 will be October 16-20 in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Details coming soon!

LEVA was proud to have representation at the recent annual conference of the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences in Birmingham, England. 

John Kennedy, LEVA’s International Strategies Program Manager, facilitated two days of video evidence sessions. LEVA instructor Scott Kuntz gave a lecture on the reliability of video evidence.

The mounting interest for LEVA training in the United Kingdom has resulted in scheduled classes beginning in 2017.
