Cell phone mapping scientific standards vary by state. Do you know your states standards? For instance, Texas uses Rule 702 of the Federal Rules of Evidence and New York uses Frye Standards. They are trial motions that aim to preclude evidence based on their scientific validity. Consequently, scientific motions like, the Daubert Standard, can result in loss of evidence. For that reason, understanding best practices of cell phone mapping is important for every investigator and attorney. ZetX subject matter experts testify to Scientific Challenges throughout the United States. Most states follow the same guidelines, however, there are differences based on the judges opinion at the time of trial.
More importantly, ZetX uses scientific practices like drive testing, and as a result, overcome scientific motions on a consistent basis. The standards we use at ZetX provide excellent results in trial because we meet and testify to the toughest scientific thresholds. The most noteworthy being, extended testing of our theories and techniques and well documented known error rates within the cellular networks. You can learn more about this topic by attending a ZetX 40 Hour Basic Course. Thereafter, you are eligible to attend the Subject Matter Expert Course and represent your agency.
