Video Evidence and LEVA Lab

The Digital Media Evidence Processing Lab at UIndy is used to train investigators in analyzing video evidence. The lab does not process evidence from individual cases but can be pressed into service during a wide-scale investigation or national emergency.

Classes are scheduled and managed by the Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association. View the training calendar and register online through LEVA.

The lab houses state-of-the-art software and hardware and has the capacity to train up to 38 investigators at one time or process and manage significant quantities of video data. It opened in 2007 and is the world’s first permanent facility for training criminal investigators and the only one with such large capacity.  Investigators from around the world attend the lab.

The establishment of this permanent training facility developed from a long-standing relationship between LEVA and UIndy's Dr. Thomas Christenberry, Director of Strategic Operations at School for Adult Learning. For more information, contact Christenberry at or 317-788-2066.
