Modern Evidence Management - Law and Order Magazine (June, 2015) – Managing evidence for modern police departments has become even more challenging as departments are required to maintain digital recordings from dash cams and body cams. Added to the sheer volume of recordings, the freedom of information requests that are being made for those recordings and which must be processed in a timely and legal manner have become a monumental issue. In the linked issue you will see how FileOnQ's solutions EvidenceOnQ and DigitalOnQ is helping agencies accomplish their goals and overcome the struggles that often plague agencies in regard to managing physical and electronic evidence
Cochester, VT – The Colchester, Vermont, Police Department has successfully implemented the EvidenceOnQ evidence management system from FileOnQ, Inc., helping to make their evidence chamber one of the best in the state.
While the property room in a police department is usually the sole overseer of evidence, the forensic lab—located either inside or outside of the department—shares this responsibility, too. The lab performs testing and analysis of evidence, and then documents findings. Without the ability to automate its operations, a forensic lab can quickly become overwhelmed and backlogs of evidence can balloon. Most lab testing is time-sensitive since so much evidence is tied to pending court cases. For these cases, the software’s ability to generate reports on the results of evidence testing is critical.
See how agencies are overcoming the stuggles related to when evidence goes to lab and are finding significant benefits from integrating thier evidence and LIMS systems.
Sept 20th, 2014 – To accomplish effective evidence management at a law enforcement agency, it is essential to have proper policies, standards and practices. Since this is an intricate, multi-faceted process, automating has become essential. A comprehensive software program can track and control the wide range of critical functions required, yield massive time savings, increase efficiency and establish and maintain mandatory chain of custody. However, once software is acquired and installed, there also must be thorough, consistent training that addresses the specific evidence control needs of each law enforcement agency.
