Today, law enforcement agencies are making attempts to adapt to the exponential growth in the amount of video and photo information - captured by eyewitnesses, investigators, officers, security cameras and news media. This boom in the amount of data being produced is creating a situation where local storage space is quickly being used up and agencies do not have a rich platform to analyze this data. AWS Partner, Citizen Global has developed a cutting-edge software platform that enables law enforcement to easily collect, manage, analyze and distribute enormous volumes of photo and video information. By accelerating critical investigation and response time, this technology significantly contributes to the improvement of public safety.
