A significant number of UK police forces are now using NICE’s market-leading digital evidence management solution to digitally transform the criminal justice process
PLEASANT (Nasdaq: NICE) announced today that police forces in England and Wales have used NICE Survey to handle over 4 million investigations involving millions of digital pieces of evidence. Powered by the NICE cloud Obvious platform, NICE Investigate helps police forces digitally transform the way digital evidence and investigations are handled to uncover the truth in digital evidence and close cases faster.
Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE, commented, “Solving crimes is about finding the truth, and that relies on digital evidence. But with digital evidence residing in so many different systems and locations, investigators waste a tremendous amount of time searching for, collecting, copying and analyzing it, and moving it from place to place. NICE Investigate eliminates those manual processes that slow down investigators so they can better use their time doing the job they signed up for – solving cases.
NICE Survey helps police forces around the world reduce crime and realize cost savings and efficiencies through the digital transformation of the end-to-end criminal justice process. As a one-stop solution for digital evidence management, NICE Investigate improves operational efficiency by allowing investigators to collect evidence through a single connection. NICE Investigate automatically pulls digital evidence from embedded systems into electronic records to start case building. Investigators can also electronically share digital records with the Crown Prosecution Service and other justice partners.
Benefits reported by police forces include:
- Significant efficiency gains through automated case creation and the ability to automatically extract digital evidence from digital records. NICE Investigate also eliminates a myriad of other manual tasks involved in managing digital evidence (such as copying evidence onto CDs, DVDs, and USB sticks).
- Save time by reducing journeys to gather evidence (a police force eliminated 4,500 weekly trips). Evidence can be collected in a fraction of the time and without requiring officers to travel.
- Digital evidence can also be shared faster with the Crown Prosecution Service by fully digital means. One police department reported that the time it takes to share evidence has been reduced from 3-5 days to a few hours.
- Reduced risk for victims due to earlier charging decisions and higher referral rates resulting from the ability to obtain, review and share digital evidence quickly and efficiently.
- Better community engagement in the fight against crime by digitally transforming the way citizens and businesses share digital evidence. Over 5,500 UK businesses have registered their CCTV cameras with NICE Investigate, with a further 9,000 invited and awaiting registration.
