Photographic Evidence

Max Kerley made this Freedom of Information request to Devon and Cornwall Constabulary This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Devon and Cornwall Constabulary,

I'm curious regarding photographic evidence taken by the police ie scene of crime, injuries, scene of an accident.

Are photos edited, joined together or manipulated in any way? If so, what possible reasons would there be for doing so and would originals still be available?

Is the evidence able to be audited and a trail of any editing be looked at?

Yours faithfully,

Max Kerley
