On January 14, 2019, the Body-Worn Camera (BWC) Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Team will present a webinar on “Digital Evidence Integration.”
Digital evidence integration is a process that optimally compiles videos, photographs, electronic files, and other digital data into a common repository or system so that the evidence can be viewed holistically, in one place, for a common evidentiary view of a given case. Digital evidence may include, but is not limited to, the following: body-worn camera video, in-car video, automated license plate readers, etc. During this webinar, participants will hear from sites who will discuss their experiences with digital evidence integration, the challenges they faced, the benefits they have experienced, and lessons learned for other agencies looking to do the same. Deputy District Attorney and BWC TTA Lead Damon Mosler will discuss how digital evidence management impacts the prosecutor’s office. Participants will gain a better understanding of digital evidence integration as well the potential best practices to follow when using this approach.
Elliot Harkavy, Technology Advisor for BWC TTA, will set the context for this webinar by discussing the current field of digital evidence integration and the research that is currently available.
Approaches to digital evidence integration will be provided by:
- Michael Knuppel, Chief Data Officer and Program Director, Montgomery County, Maryland Department of Technology Services;
- Renee Cobb, Project Manager, Montgomery County, Maryland Department of Technology Services;
- Adam Kisthardt, Director, Montgomery County, Maryland Police Department;
- Pat Rigdon, Commander, Colorado Springs, Colorado Police Department; and
- Damon Mosler, BWC TTA Lead and Deputy District Attorney, San Diego County, California.
Dan Zehnder, Captain (ret.) Las Vegas, Nevada Metropolitan Police Department and BWC TTA Lead, will conclude the webinar by discussing future pathways for digital evidence integration.
