Participating agencies include police departments from Andalusia, Florala, Enterprise, Greenville, Luverne, Brewton, Monroeville, Prattville, Geneva and DeFuniak Springs, as well as the sheriff’s departments from Escambia and Butler counties.

The hands-on training class is designed to teach officers how to document crime scenes, accident scenes and all aspects of police photography. The instructor is employed at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Glenco, Ga.
