Nsikan Akpan of PBS wrote a nice article detailing how FARO 3d Laser scanners were used in the Tamir Rice and San Bernardino shooting cases. Green Forensics uses the FARO X330 long range scanner mentioned in the article.

In the future we expect laser scanning to become a very common tool used in the documentation of crime scene.
