Current practice in many law enforcement agencies finds photography uninspired in both principle, prestige, and practice. Habitually the newest recruit on the force inherits the photographic detail. Just about the time he becomes somewhat proficient in this field a new recruit appears and takes over the photographic tasks, so that picture making never makes a really progressive step. By using a standard approach to the more important tasks, those of scenes of crime, even the relatively untrained can do the necessary on crime scene problems with reasonable assurance that the results will support prosecution labors. The Standard For Crime Scene Photography comes from an international body of forensic photographers patterned after the British Qualifying Associations. EPIC offers an Associateship and a Fellowship to workers meeting its standards.
