Data Challenges in Policing the Digital Age
Law enforcement agencies today are dealing with an onslaught of data, from the crime scene and all the way to the courtroom. With the constant expansion of a variety of mobile and Internet-of-Things devices, the modern urban landscape produces a digitally noisy environment that can obscure digital evidence. Law enforcement needs an efficient and effective way to navigate through the data that ensures privacy, identifies suspects, and resolves cases quickly.
Thanks to digital forensics, mobile devices have become a key data source for investigations however, they are just one piece of the puzzle. Today, digital evidence from multiple devices needs to be compared, contrasted, and investigated with other data sources such as cloud, CDRs, data from RMS, internal police databases, and much more.
Law enforcement in the 21st century must deploy a digital intelligence strategy to break down data silos and enable investigators to surface insights and leads quicker and more efficiently than ever before.
As 5G technology ramps up the speed and amount of data being communicated, law enforcement will need cutting-edge digital intelligence solutions to transform these challenges into opportunities.
