Guns expert witnesses often have experience working with security and law enforcement, since firearms are a very important aspect of each field. Guns expert consulting may provide valuable insight for cases involving such areas as weapons safety, ballistics, criminalistics examination, and many other related disciplines, as each may become the focus of a guns-related court case.
Gun experts are often knowledgeable in the proper way of which law enforcement officers are expected to handle firearms, including rules and regulations regarding the use of force, among other important patrol procedures and tactics. Violations of police protocol would be grounds for possible lawsuits, since such actions violate public safety. Failing to enforce proper peace officer standards and training would also lead to problems with risk management, and be cause for litigation.
Some gun expert witnesses may be tasked with assessing a crime scene and providing expert testimony on bullet trajectories and additional types of bullet analysis, whether it is an officer-involved shooting or other category of crime. Gun experts may also have experience working with wounds and scars, homicide, footprint examination, tire marks, arson, and further forms of crime scenes and potential evidence. Gun experts may also have a background focusing on ballistics and firearms training, which must adhere to rigid safety regulations.
