    Important Update.

    Many of you have seen the recent headlines regarding the United States Department of Interior’s mandate to “Permanently” ground all drones from the Chinese manufacturer, DJI. 

    This order is executed by the Department of the Interior over concerns regarding foreign government access to the flight logs and other data. This mandate comes two years after the United States Army reportedly directed troops to stop using Chinese-made DJI drones for the same reason. Data from your agency is no less important for compliance with data security standards.  We recommend a serious consideration before you fly or purchase a Chinese-made DJI drone, which may allow a breach of your data.

    We are proud to reiterate that the Skydio 2 Drone is, not only the most advanced public safety drone on the planet, but is also American-made. When combined with Intrensic’s Evidence on Cloud™ Digital Evidence Management Software, Skydio 2 drone data becomes the most secure and compliant in the public safety industry.

    Please click on the link below to learn more about the most secure, advanced AI, and obstacle avoidance drone system on the market. 

    The Skydio 2 is the easiest to fly, least likely to crash drone available and is proud to be made here in America.

    Digital Evidence Management Market Global Forecast to 2023

    The digital evidence management market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.7% during the forecast period

    The global digital evidence management market size is expected to grow from USD 4.35 billion in 2018 to USD 7.56 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 11.7% during the forecast period. The major factors that are expected to drive the growth of the digital evidence management market include the growing rate of digital crimes, increasing government initiatives, and emerging technologies. In addition to this, the rising investments in the emerging technologies are also expected to be one of the biggest and most important factors for the market growth. However, the lack of skilled professionals and hesitancy of legal officers over sharing digital evidence may hamper the market growth.

    The evidence collection, storage, and sharing segment to have the largest market share during the forecast period

    Digital evidence management software assists organizations in managing digital evidence, helps investigators upload the digital evidence data by ensuring integrity and authenticity of files, and offers easy search and share of the critical data. Collecting, sharing, and storing evidence data are very crucial during criminal investigations, as it is important to maintain integrity of evidence during the investigation process. The evidence collection, storage, and sharing software helps manage the evidence collected from different sources, such as emails, text messages, transactions, online accounts, images, and browsing histories. Humungous data generated from these sources is one of the main factors expected to increase the demand for digital evidence management software.

    North America to hold the largest market size, while APAC to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

    North America is expected to hold the largest market size, due to the presence of a large number of digital evidence management vendors in the region and different government initiatives for evidence security. The rising adoption of technologies and increasing need for law enforcement agencies to share confidential data are significant factors driving the digital evidence management market in North America. Furthermore, the US is expected to dominate the overall digital evidence management market in North America.

    Research Coverage
    The report includes an in-depth competitive analysis of the key players in the digital evidence management market, along with their company profiles, recent developments, and key market strategies.

    OPEN LETTER: Chief Gutzwiller picks Intrensic to save Body Camera Program

    With the new law in Michigan that took effect mid-January of 2018 signed by Governor Snyder, agencies that had BWC,s (Body Worn Camera’s) were caught in a pinch if their current program did not include software for storage management and redaction capabilities of the video downloaded from the BWC’s. The new law now includes rules that pertain to Crime Victim’s Rights in regards to video redaction and time frames that must be established on video retained/stored and what can or cannot be released under those who file a Freedom of Information request to retrieve video.

    My dilemma as a new Chief for the City of Essexville was how to accomplish this, mid-budget year, to assure that I complied with the new State Law and had a program that was not labor intensive to my staff and was also easy to use. I also encountered a problem with limited storage availability to store all of the video footage and manually go in to determine what needed to be saved for what length of time under the new law.

    Being unable to provide a cost effective resolution and compliance with the new law I was forced to pull my Axon BWC’s out of service until a solution was found that would not bust my budget. This did not bode well with the labor union as they are firm believers in the BWC’s as well as our Prosecutors Office.

    I contacted Axon to obtain a quote price of storage management and redaction software and was floored when I was quoted $54,000 over a five year period. Essexville is a small community of 3,600 residents and my agency has seven full time PSO’s with 16 part paid fire personnel. My annual budget is approximately $640,000 and we had just purchased a new Fire Truck in February of 2018. After a discussion with the Axon sales representative it was evident that they were not willing to negotiate a fair price for their product and being a small agency I informed them we could not support that cost for their product. I was now stuck with five Axon BWC’s sitting on a shelve that could not be used.

    I started to research different companies on line who claimed to have easy solutions that were also cost effective but ultimately when you looked at the cost’s involved, the majority of the expense involved video storage fee’s with limitations on the amount of storage based on a fee structure.

    I received an email from Intrensic advertising their product of storage management, redaction and Go Pro Camera’s. I was very interested with what I reviewed in the advertisement as Go Pro is a very durable and easy camera to operate and is proven in the field. I contacted the company and before you know it I was speaking to their representative to discuss their system. The system sounded too good to be true especially the redaction piece of the software, their company handles redaction so the agency does not have to! The agency advises Intrensic what video needs to be redacted and the company pulls the video, redacts the video, per your specifications and sends you the finished product so that you can release it to the media or upon receiving a FOIA request. Another feature is unlimited storage in the cloud! You can also set the system up to manage investigations, download your in-car video footage, pictures, case files and other video segments that may involve evidence in a case. You also have the availability to share this info with your Prosecutors Office electronically rather than print information out and hand deliver these items for warrant apps and case files for court.

    Intrensic provided a representative to us that is a former law enforcement officer as well as a veteran, (Kevin Angell) to fully explain the system via phone and actually sent us a Go Pro Camera to play with to see whether or not we would like the audio and video quality. I had my officers wear the camera and play with it to see how easy it was to use and to review the audio and video quality. There was no comparison with the Axon Camera’s that we previously used, the Go Pro by far was a better quality camera.

    I was very impressed with the camera as well as the software management and redaction that Intrensic offered, so much so that Kevin flew to Michigan to meet my staff and go over the entire system and train staff as well. Kevin spent the week here in Michigan to answer any questions that came up or any problems that we encountered so that he was here to handle them. I can tell you that I was so impressed with Intrensic and Kevin Angell that my agency signed a five year contract, they understood our budget constraints and were willing to work with us on pricing to make sure that BWC’s were placed back into service and my staff could not be happier. My agency is now in compliance with the state law and the program will not cause additional staffing issues to address redaction or storage management.

    If you are asking me would I endorse this product? ABSOLUTELY! We are now a GO PRO BWC user!

    DID YOU KNOW? Location Based Evidence Gathering

    The location of evidence gathered is important, searchable and helps with analytics.
    The location of evidence gathered is important, searchable and helps with analytics.

    In a piece of Evidence, the user can now add the location of their recordings.

    In some cases the location may already be present because of the camera’s GPS activation OR our integration with your agency’s CAD system.  Either way, having location data is valuable when running reports, searching for video at a specific location and even analytics.  One of our next releases will include the ability to draw a GEO fence around a location and see all of the recordings in that designated area.

    Location Based Evidence Gathering is also a great tool when used in conjunction with our Karma UAV.

You can also set the system up to manage investigations, download your in-car video footage, pictures, case files and other video segments that may involve evidence in a case. You also have the availability to share this info with your Prosecutors Office electronically rather than print information out and hand deliver these items for warrant apps and case files for court.

    Intrensic provided a representative to us that is a former law enforcement officer as well as a veteran, (Kevin Angell) to fully explain the system via phone and actually sent us a Go Pro Camera to play with to see whether or not we would like the audio and video quality. I had my officers wear the camera and play with it to see how easy it was to use and to review the audio and video quality. There was no comparison with the Axon Camera’s that we previously used, the Go Pro by far was a better quality camera.

    I was very impressed with the camera as well as the software management and redaction that Intrensic offered, so much so that Kevin flew to Michigan to meet my staff and go over the entire system and train staff as well. Kevin spent the week here in Michigan to answer any questions that came up or any problems that we encountered so that he was here to handle them. I can tell you that I was so impressed with Intrensic and Kevin Angell that my agency signed a five year contract, they understood our budget constraints and were willing to work with us on pricing to make sure that BWC’s were placed back into service and my staff could not be happier. My agency is now in compliance with the state law and the program will not cause additional staffing issues to address redaction or storage management.

    If you are asking me would I endorse this product? ABSOLUTELY! We are now a GO PRO BWC user!

    DID YOU KNOW? Location Based Evidence Gathering

    August 2,2017
    The location of evidence gathered is important, searchable and helps with analytics.
    The location of evidence gathered is important, searchable and helps with analytics.

    In a piece of Evidence, the user can now add the location of their recordings.

    In some cases the location may already be present because of the camera’s GPS activation OR our integration with your agency’s CAD system.  Either way, having location data is valuable when running reports, searching for video at a specific location and even analytics.  One of our next releases will include the ability to draw a GEO fence around a location and see all of the recordings in that designated area.

    Location Based Evidence Gathering is also a great tool when used in conjunction with our Karma UAV.
