U.K. Consortium Selects NICE Evidence Management Solution
Wednesday, June 03, 2020 | Comments

A consortium of four U.K. police forces including Hampshire Constabulary, Thames Valley Police, Surrey Police and Sussex Police, operating as the South East Regional Integrated Policing Programme (SERIP), signed a contract with NICE to deploy its digital evidence management solution. SERIP will roll out NICE Investigate to more than 12,000 officers to streamline investigations and address the challenges of growing digital evidence.

“Having had the opportunity to pilot NICE Investigate in the four forces, we could see the system in action and realize the benefits for our investigations and investigators. 92% of our officers said it would make their investigation more effective,” said a spokesperson from SERIP. “NICE Investigate will be transformational for us, not only in terms of time savings but also through improved policing outcomes that will ultimately reduce threats, harm and risk to our communities.”

The technology will seamlessly integrate with the four forces’ records management, body-worn video and interview recording systems so investigators can automatically correlate and gather evidence through a single login. The product will also make it easier for SERIP forces to collect closed-caption TV (CCTV) video for cases. Investigators can instantly pull up a list of cameras within an incident radius and send off a request to registered businesses located within that geographic area. Any uploaded video is automatically transcoded to a useable format and securely stored in the Microsoft Azure cloud.
