Content management firm’s integrated digital interview solution is being evolved into a full evidence management system in collaboration with key technology partners
Hatfield, UK, 31 January, 2017 – Content management leader SynApps Solutions is to evolve its SynApps-developed digital interview solution into a full evidence management system in order to help UK Police meet the growing digital evidence requirement in modern law enforcement.
Built on a market leading Enterprise Content Management platform and open standards support for multiple data formats, including open source, available on-premise or cloud, the new Evidence Management solution will offer Chief Constables ways to work with content of all types.
Such a comprehensive solution is needed as it will be a key aid in transitioning to digital evidence management, providing a chain of digital evidence, from fingerprints to sound and video recordings, for the Police, the CPS, and other stakeholders in modern digital justice.
The platform can “evidence enable” existing policing systems providing officers with an immediate and complete view of the case.
“We are witnessing growing demand for modern content management solutions by our Police customers,” confirmed SynApps’s Joint CEO and Sales & Marketing Director Mark Winstone.
“Digital evidence is increasingly central with the police being expected to manage, store, search, properly label and timestamp evidence for their use as well as today’s digital citizenry,” he added.
The Home Office has highlighted the need for a comprehensive and joined up programme of digital transformation, SynApps points out, which will be difficult to deliver with manual and paper-based systems.
“We are working closely with our partners and Forces to properly understand and meet the challenges they face from the demand for digital evidence management,” he said.
The SynApps delivered and developed Evidence Management solution promises
• A secure “pick-up” server for loosely coupled integration with existing and future capture devices
• Digital fingerprinting to maintain evidential weight
• An Open API for closer integration with existing capture devices
• The ability to store and manage any digital evidence, regardless of format or size
• A way to “Evidence enable” existing policing systems
• Comprehensive CCTV codec support
• Annotation and redaction support
• Retention and Records Management
• Secure content transfer portal with CPS or other agencies.
