EvidenceWorks® is the UK’s leading solution for the management of digital evidence. Components of the suite are in use in 15 UK Police forces and Criminal Justice agencies ranging from standalone interview recording units to a fully networked, multi-media solution encompassing interviews, CCTV, Body Worn Video, Crime Scene imagery and public provision media.

  • Reducing the risk of data loss through secure, robust storage and data sharing capabilities
