Infinitely Scalable, Highly Secure and Cost-Efficient Solution for Digital Evidence Management
Create a secure, unified repository of all your digital evidence files, such as video-, photos-, fingerprints, audio-recordings. Create, search, preview and manage millions of files.
The FotoWare System integrates with your force network and it runs securely in your private data center or in the Microsoft Azure cloud.
Ingest your files via an easy-to-use web interface that can trigger actions to enhance your productivity with case management systems. FotoWare is based on industry standards, and is hardware neutral.
We believe in a best-of-breed approach, where your call and dispatch, records management, and evidence management systems are all integrated to give your staff immediate access to the information they need.
Let officers record and ingest digital evidence from body-worn video cameras, DSLRs, mobile phones, or any other device in virtually all file formats from terminals in the police station or using mobile devices and secure networks. The UI makes it easy for officers to work with large amounts of visual files to quickly identify, select and use the right evidence.
Case evidence files such as video and case photos, are securely stored in the FotoWare solution, and seamlessly linked with metadata in your records management system.
Officers can easily share, collaborate and select digital evidence, and pass it on to prosecution services in electronic form or through integration with APIs provided by these institutions. Users can view evidence through your case management system, or if permitted, across cases and historical data directly in the DEMS. Control which recipient can access or download shared content or revoke content on demand.
Ensure security over sensitive and high profile case evidence by defining security policies and assigning users to roles that restrict their access to permitted information and operations. The administration web portal gives you detailed activity logs and enables user and permissions management. FotoWare's DEM integrates with Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, and SAML-based Identity and Access Management solutions.
Asset integrity is maintained through check summing to prevent accidental or deliberate tampering that may render them unsuitable as evidence in the court. Integrity is validated before and after upload. The system stores hash value of files and is self-healing, optimizing for maximum performance and uptime.
Configure to follow retention policies, automatically purge evidence that is not connected to a case, set retention policies according to case type, keep evidence for as long as legally required.
Officers can quickly add or review comments and visual indicators on assets to help identify objects crucial to the investigation. Easily blur out faces, license plates, and other sensitive information before evidence is shared with the press.
Easily create contact sheets in PDF format for electronic delivery to prosecution services, or use our plugins to Microsoft Word to include digital evidence in written reports.
Get detailed audit reports to know everything that has been done to an asset from the moment it entered the system. Reports can be customized to provide the precise level of information needed.
