New System Is Designed to Speed Investigations
Genetec Inc. introduced Genetec Clearance, a case management system designed to speed up investigations by allowing different organizations to collect, manage and share video evidence and other relevant case information.
Genetec Clearance allows police officers, investigators and security managers to gather digital evidence from a variety of sources and easily store, manage, review and share it from within a single application.
Genetec Clearance enables collaboration across independent agencies and private sector organizations. All pertinent files related to cases are centralized and can be securely shared between investigators or requested by third parties, without needing to physically ship or deliver the recordings. As the application is not licensed per seat, access can be shared with as many users as needed, without incurring any additional fees. With built-in video redaction, the privacy of bystanders can be protected by allowing identifiable information to be masked before sending video to other stakeholders. All user actions initiated within the system, whether internal or external, are automatically tracked to ensure the chain of custody of the evidence is maintained at all times.
“The increased evidence that is now available from video surveillance systems, body cameras, and from witnesses can help solve crimes. However, the sheer amount of data to be managed can also become cumbersome to process and review, increasing the time spent on case preparation, rather than the investigation. That’s why we have developed a case management system to help automate certain tasks that are frequently performed manually today and to facilitate collaboration between law enforcement, corporate security departments, legal entities, and the public,” explained Erick Ceresato, product manager at Genetec.
