In Memory of Sheriff Louis J. Miesner
By: CaseGuard
  No one knows better the danger that a tense circumstance can present than police in the United States. Constantly under pressure to control people who are guaranteed rights that provide them a wide latitude of no control, the scenarios that citizens can present range from the mundane to sheer terror, even for a trained professional. With that thought, we continue to reflect on moments in the history of law enforcement we wish we could get back, the sacrifices of those that have paid the...

By: CaseGuard
  We’ve talked about frame rates previously, and how the human eye can “artifact” details, or fill in what it perceives should be in the image when the frame rate is poor. Now let’s discuss camera resolution and how it affects the videos your agency is recording.   Interlaced Image and “Artifacting” Interlaced imagery has been passing through your televisions for as long as you’ve had one, up until the last ten...

Digital Evidence Video Frame Rates
By: CaseGuard
  Digital evidence video frame rates are an often overlooked topic when discussing the tools used to capture digital evidence. From body worn cameras, to interview room cameras, and everything in between, and beyond, we forget to evaluate devices based on their Frames Per Second (fps) rate, and from the start of any new endeavor, handcuff our agencies to the limitations of what those devices can handle when capturing data. In this article, we will explain common fps rates available on the...

Document Redaction | Electronic Documents Guidelines
By: CaseGuard
  For a long time now, the redaction of electronic documents has been a topic of debate. Much of the debate centers on what can be redacted, what should be redacted, and how to accomplish a full-proof redaction so that redacted information cannot be compromised.
