Digital Evidence Video Resolution

There are many other video resolutions beyond 1080p, like 2K and 4K, and those may eventually get perfected for the type of devices being used in public safety today. However, for the time being, 1080p is your best, and only true option when dealing with cameras. Whether it’s a non-emergency call, an investigation, or a complaint you’re reviewing, the details matter, and you need technology that is presenting all the details.

As IT needs in law enforcement get more niche and sophisticated, vendors need to play by your rules, not the other way around. If they aren’t going to serve your needs, cancel the contract and get rid of them. They are not worth the tax dollars, or the headache.

Content & Camera Management for Law Enforcement

A brief overview of the relationships between cameras, content, and evidence management shows why these three things need to be symbiotic. Without harmony between these tools, your agency is going to have to work harder, and likely inefficiently, to accomplish results.

In Memory of Officer Thomas Devlin

One could reflect on the tragedy of Officer Devlin. An officer of true character, grit, and determination, who did not allow a massive injury to destroy who he was, and what he could do. In fact, he used his injury to add to the legacy of BCPD.

CaseGuard Document Redaction
