Today, security investigations are more complex than ever. The growth of new technologies means cases involve huge amounts of digital evidence. The increase in the amount of evidence gathered from surveillance systems, body cameras, and civilians can help solve crimes. However, it also presents new challenges.
A solution to help reduce complexity and investigation times is Genetec Clearance from Genetec and Convergint Technologies. This collaborative case management system can help speed up investigations by allowing agencies to securely collect, manage, and share evidence from different sources.
Gather data from disparate sources and store it in a centralized, scalable system. Integrate video and other types of evidence, and save files while increasing storage capacity, without worrying about server maintenance.
Synchronize with existing CAD and RMS platforms to manage cases more efficiently. Use less time and labor juggling multiple applications – and classify evidence to make locating files easier.
Locate media quickly, without searching through volumes of digital evidence. Convert and play videos automatically instead of waiting for large, imported videos to slowly load.
Collaborate with an unlimited number of users inside or outside your organization. Avoid time-consuming storage and transportation, deal with FOIA requests, and receive public evidence securely.
Genetec Clearance enables collaboration across independent agencies and private sector organizations. All pertinent files related to cases (video files as well as audio, images, documents, etc.) are centralized and can be securely shared between investigators or requested by third parties, without needing to physically ship or deliver the recordings. As the application is not licensed per seat, access can be shared with as many users as needed, without incurring any additional fees. With built-in video redaction, the privacy of bystanders can be protected by allowing identifiable information to be masked before sending video to other stakeholders. All user actions initiated within the system, whether internal or external, are automatically tracked to ensure the chain of custody of the evidence is maintained at all times.
Genetec Clearance APIs can also be used to integrate with third-party systems and automate the upload of video recordings and associated metadata to be reviewed within the system. Integration with Record Management Systems (RMS) enables law enforcement departments to automate the creation of new cases with their existing record system, reducing the need for duplicate data entry.
