Purpose of white paper:
- Outlines how digital evidence recording can be effectively implemented
- Examines how nationwide adoption of this technology benefits the Police services, Criminal Justice System (CJS) and Public
Although tape-based solutions are largely considered obsolete due to the limitations of their analogue format, the majority of Police forces still rely on this decades-old technology to capture crucial evidence from suspects and witnesses.
As analogue systems reach end of life, a digital server-based solution is now widely accepted as their natural successor – a view supported by the recent Home Office pilot at Lancashire Constabulary. Any such solution needs to demonstrate cost savings and measurable efficiencies – to the Police, the government and ultimately the tax-payer.
- The main issues emerging from the continued use of tapes
- Key features a digital solution should incorporate
- Process impact when moving from analogue to digital
- Regional Police Forces incorporating:
- Police Interviewers
- Force Tape Summary Bureaux & Force Admin Support Units
- Force Custody Office, Force Case Managers, Force Procurement, Force IT, Force HR/Training
- Basic Command Units
- Her Majesty’s Court Service
- Home Office and Agencies e.g. NPIA
