Body Camera Reporting, Auditing Features Push Intrensic to the Forefront
A newly released reporting feature inside Intrensic's Digital Evidence Management System has catapulted them ahead of the competition.
Washington, DC, May 3, 2017 (Newswire.com) - As Intrensic closes the gap on its development of both a Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and a Records Management (RMS) platform, a newly released feature in their Digital Evidence Management System (DEMS) has catapulted them ahead of the competition.
With terabytes of video uploaded to the cloud in only months, the ability to audit a body camera program is essential. While Intrensic has arguably the most detailed audit trail in the business by capturing every file touch down to the IP address, date and time is just not enough.
"We saw the need to create a report that would allow a patrol supervisor or body camera program manager to audit video uploads versus an officer's number of calls," said Director of Product Development Kevin Angell. Angell said he realized the need for the report when presenting at a national conference to community organizations and special interests groups.
Following that meeting, Angell met with CEO Kevin Mullins and discussed the creation of an Upload Audit Report (UAR). The report would be able to be run by supervisors daily, weekly, monthly or on a customized set of dates. It would include the number of uploads on a specific date and could be exported as a PDF report.
"We knew that with the UAR in hand, a supervisor could call dispatch or run a call log and ensure the integrity of their program by comparing uploads to calls," said Mullins. Mullins immediately sent the feature to the development team for research.
The UAR is not the only reporting feature developed during the recent roll-out, but Mullins held his cards close. When pressed Mullins said, "Crime reporting to the FBI, predictive patrolling and grant reporting were as important to us as they were to our clients."
The Bureau of Justice Assistance (Washington, DC), their Body Worn Camera toolkit and the Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) program provide some additional insight into the future needs of agencies and body-worn camera programs. Angell remarked that he is in a constant "read and research mode" to ensure that Intrensic stays ahead of the curve. "We really hit the ball out of the park this time," he said. "I am not aware of any other body-worn camera provider with such a report," he added, referring to the UAR.
Once the CAD and RMS platforms roll out later this year, the UAR will go hand in hand with several other reports, thereby freeing up officers to engage the community and build relationships.
