Key Findings

The report surfaced five major development areas that are inhibiting law enforcement agencies from mastering digital evidence as part of their investigative workflow:

  • Staffing Shortages

    Lack of examiners to help process digital evidence.
  • Skills Shortages

    Most agencies lack sufficient IT expertise.
  • Tools and Technologies

    The majority of investigators and examiners feel they miss key evidence.
  • Intra- and Inter-agency Silos

    Silos between different departments and IT systems, result in longer lead times.
  • Lacking Strategy

    Over half of agency managers said they have a poor or no digital transformation strategy, and are likely to prioritize digital transformation.
