In my extensive experience as a forensic security expert, I consider site visits to be the most crucial element. Despite some attorneys hesitating to hire forensic security experts to assist in their cases due to perceived costs, I firmly believe that visiting the site adds immense value to the litigation process. There are several reasons for this:

An Edge in Testifying

When opposing counsel’s experts haven’t visited the site, having done so provides a significant advantage during testimony. Personal experiences and observations during a site visit create a compelling narrative for the jury, dramatically enhancing the credibility of the testimony given.

Uncovering Critical Details

In a case I had that involved sexual assault in an apartment complex, understanding bit codes and keyway inconsistencies was pivotal. Visiting the site revealed serious flaws in the key system, allowing the crime to occur and significantly impacting the case’s outcome.

Another case I had occurred at a train station where there were over-oiled hinges. Examining this when visiting shed light on how the door remained ajar and contributed to criminal opportunity.

Photographic Evidence

Visiting the site of a security breach or crime allows for photographs to be taken that can bolster a case in court, detailing the site to those who haven’t been able to see it with their own eyes and allowing for accurate deposition.

While challenges such as distance may limit physical site visits, the benefits are clear. From uncovering vulnerabilities, presenting clear evidence, and enhancing case narratives, site visits are an invaluable aspect of forensic security work. Security, as I firmly believe, is indeed a science that requires keen observation and analysis.
