The Impact of Video Evidence on the Criminal Justice SystemLaw enforcement agencies across the country have procured or are considering the acquisition of body-worn video cameras, dash cams, and the use of other forms of video evidence to document interactions with the public and support criminal investigations. While there are many
benefits of these innovations, many agencies are reluctant to coordinate plans across the criminal justice system. Specifically, their reluctance includes coordinating with the prosecutor offices to determine solutions to best handle the abundance of evidence collected by these technologies.
This webinar reviews a cost model analysis of the impacts on and
requirements for the prosecutor’s office from the accelerated generation of video evidence in criminal investigations. The workshop also presents a case study in the analysis of the processes for review and handling of video evidence as it impacts the entire criminal justice system. The presenters report on the collaborative work with prosecutors and other stakeholders across the criminal justice system to determine staffing and the creation of a cost model to evaluate alternative policies for implementation.
The presentation also offer recommendations for enhanced stakeholder collaboration to achieve maximum benefits with limited budgets.
