Michigan Video Testimony Project -- 2008 CSG Innovations Award Winner

Historically, scientists in the Forensic Science Division of the Michigan State Police testify in court about 1,000 times each year. This figure does not account for the 25-30 percent of the time scientists travel to court but don't testify because trials are rescheduled. Both situations inhibit the ability of the scientists to complete casework because they are out of the lab. Michigan's Video Testimony Project will eliminate wasted time and travel by enabling forensic scientists working in seven laboratories in the state to provide video testimony at proceedings in more than 50 courts around the state. Pilot trials of the system saved more than 2,300 miles in actual travel, 42 hours of travel time, and nearly $650 in gasoline and meal costs to the Forensic Science Division.
