Why Law Enforcement Needs Efficient Data Management

Why Law Enforcement Needs Efficient Data Management

We often write about the challenges organizations in various industries face when it comes to data management. From healthcare to education, several sectors are trying to determine how to organize and analyze the vast amounts of data they store. Law enforcement, in particular, is one industry that’s finding it hard to cope. Law enforcement agencies are encountering a huge problem: storing and sorting video footage.

The Problem

The quantity of video footage a single law enforcement agency has to manage is unfathomable. A combination of high-definition body-worn cameras, dash cameras, interview videos, and more all add up. Recently, new regulations around the mandatory use of body-worn cameras have dramatically increased the amount of data almost every agency has to manage. However, budgets hinder agencies’ abilities to upgrade to the enterprise-type solutions they need.

The Solutions

  1. Cloud Management

When agencies harness the power of the cloud, they can take advantage of storage that scales out. It can expand when needed at a fraction of the cost of traditional storage methods. For law enforcement agencies concerned about the cost of purchasing more and more storage, this can be a helpful feature.

There’s always some worry around the security of the cloud, but it’s much safer than other methods of storage available, especially when you combine a third-party’s security tactics with your own encryption methods. Data is locked down, and that’s an essential piece of the puzzle when it comes to storing and sorting law enforcement agency information.
