Free Evidence Management System (EMS) by VisioLogix: Enhancing BWC Programs for Smaller Police Agencies

VisioLogix is committed to improving public safety and supporting crime victims by addressing system gaps and providing innovative solutions to common problems. We are thrilled to offer a grant program designed to aid municipal police departments and county sheriff’s offices in establishing or enhancing their body-worn camera (BWC) programs. This grant is tailored for smaller police agencies with fewer than 15 cameras, providing free access to our robust Software as a Service (SaaS) Evidence Management System (EMS). By combining this grant with current Federal and State grants for BWC, law enforcement agencies can allocate more funds toward BWC and in-car video units. Our goal is to enhance officer interactions with the public, build community trust, and gather essential evidence for prosecuting crimes.

Program Highlights:

  • Grant for SaaS EMS: This grant program allows smaller agencies to access VisioLogix’s EMS delivered via SaaS at no cost. It is a comprehensive solution designed to meet the specific needs of law enforcement.
  • Use of Third-Party BWCs: While our EMS integrates seamlessly with VisioLogix equipment, it is also compatible with third-party body-worn cameras. This flexibility ensures agencies can use their existing equipment without additional costs.
  • Secure and Reliable: VisioLogix will host and maintain the EMS software in our secure data center. Registered law enforcement agencies can deploy a local storage server using a standard PC, utilizing our free HydraSOS software for secure communication and data transfer.
  • Free Community Support: The grant program includes free support through a community web platform. Agencies should register at least one primary contact account to access this support.

Key Features of VisioLogix EMS:

  • Complete EMS System: Managed by VisioLogix’s experienced system engineers, ensuring smooth operation and reliability.
  • Automated Uploads and Data Retention: Free Windows software facilitates easy classification, upload, and retention of data.
  • Unlimited Classifications: Define as many classifications as needed to organize evidence effectively.
  • Unlimited Data Retention: Customize file retention policies to meet specific requirements.
  • Chain of Custody: Track who accesses files and document any changes made, ensuring data integrity.
  • Redaction Tools: Automated and manual blurring of sensitive information, such as faces and other objects, for privacy and compliance.
  • Total Control: With data stored locally, agencies maintain complete control over their evidence, providing peace of mind.
