The digital evidence management challenge

Life is becoming increasingly digital. So too is law enforcement where over 80% of the evidence collected is now digital. This leaves policing organizations with the challenge of how to manage and store the mountains of digital documents, images, videos, recordings and other digital evidence from electronic devices such as laptops, cellphones and more.
