Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Purchases Two Leica ScanStation 2 Scanners

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) has purchased two Leica ScanStation 2 laser scanners to support homicide, arson/explosive, and complex deputy-involved shooting investigations, Sheriff Leroy D. Baca announced. John Radeleff, Chief of the Technical Services Division for LASD, said the technology is not only about saving time in capturing crime and accident scenes – “it’s more importantly the added value that it gives to our investigative abilities. Imagine what images like this can do for the jury to help them make decisions on their cases. To be virtually placed in the middle of the crime goes a long way to help them visualize and get a much better understanding of what actually happened.” Tony Grissim, Leica Geosystems’ Forensic Account Manager, noting that his company recently launched a public safety and forensic web site at, said, “The response from the law enforcement community echoes Sheriff Baca’s enthusiasm for the technology.”
