The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office has new high-tech technology for crime scene and accident investigations.

The technology is called the Total Station, and the sheriff’s office in Hancock County is the only agency in the northern panhandle to have one.

Police investigations start with a high-tech tripod, which pinpoints locations by laser.

The total station then calculates measurements with pinpoint accuracy.

Detectives take those numbers, download them to a computer program and with a few clicks of a mouse, the scene of a crime becomes three-dimensional.
