Lately, the law enforcement and defense industries have increasingly begun to digitize records to make information more searchable, auditable, and reliable. Furthermore, digital evidence usage has significantly increased with the introduction of various new surveillance tools that gather evidence, such as body-worn cameras, drones, biometrics, and so on.
All the data related to investigations must be safely stored and protected, from office documents, fingerprints, and footprints to the minute details of a crime scene. Ensuring this data is handled securely and efficiently is more critical than ever.
On the 2nd and 3rd of November, we held our annual Police Conference: Digital Innovation in Law Enforcement and Defense 2022. The international policing and defense communities gathered to share views and experiences regarding digital transformation in the public safety arena.
During the 2-day event, we had visitors from police districts across Europe and virtual attendees from countries including the UK, Iceland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Spain. The sessions covered various topics on best practices for using Digital Evidence Management solutions to handle forensic files securely and speeding up digital investigations, such as AI, drones, video management, and DEMS integrations.
Thanks again to everyone who participated in our conference. We would also like to profoundly thank our guest speakers, Medialogix, DeepVA and UAS Norway, for their contributions to the event.
