EvidenceWorks® is the UK’s leading solution for the management of digital evidence. The solution is in use in 14 UK Police forces and Criminal Justice agencies, with solutions ranging from standalone interview recording units to a fully networked, multi-media Digital Evidence Management solution encompassing interviews, CCTV, Body Worn Video, Crime Scene Forensic imagery and public provision media.
Over 1000 EvidenceWorks® purpose designed evidential interview recording units have managed 1 million recordings across the UK and is the widest used PACE compliant networked interview recording solution in the UK.
The latest version of EvidenceWorks®, Release 6.0, is commencing rollout now and includes an enhanced user experience in a web client.
This new version supports the automatic upload of evidence from Reveal Media Body Worn Video cameras as well as continuing support for the upload of Interviews, CCTV, Forensics images, Public Provision and more.
Release 6.0 also introduces the Multi-Media Edit Studio which brings the video preparation for Court capabilities of EvidenceWorks®, including new semi-automatic video redaction, into one simple to use suite.
Development of the platform continues apace through 2018 with support for the Digital First DETS programme, being run on behalf of police forces in England and Wales, and a Secure Data Publishing Portal that will support multi-agency sharing of digital evidence by the Police.
The Secure Data Publishing Portal allows evidence to be published to authorised organisations and individuals in a variety of ways:
- Download or stream files online

- Time-limited access to files
