Accident Investigators respond to serious accidents that require further investigation than just accident reporting. These investigators are specially trained in the concept of investigating – rather than just reporting – crashes, as well as what crash scene evidence to collect and how to collect it. The AI focuses on the interpretation and analysis of traffic crash-related evidence and includes the use of laser-based devices for measuring evidence at crash scenes and downloading that information into mapping software. AIs are also trained in vehicle dynamics and the laws of physics and mechanics that relate to traffic crashes.
Accident Investigators work on a rotating on-call basis and respond 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
