February 19, 2014 Expands Its Cloud-Based "Virtual Evidence Room"
Allows Secure Transfer of Sensitive Electronic Files by Law Enforcement to District Attorneys
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- Recognizing that law enforcement agencies often rely on manual practices to
transfer sensitive electronic evidence -- including videos, photos and audio recordings -- to district attorneys (DAs) and other
outside parties,, a business unit of TASER (NASDAQ: TASR) today unveiled External Sharing,
a new technology built specifically so digital evidence can be securely and instantaneously shared.
Today's announcement means law enforcement can now log into and email secure links that allow DAs, the
media or others to access specific files to create virtual evidence rooms. The process is similar to sharing files through widely
used consumer cloud-based storage systems like Dropbox, but with powerful security protections incorporated.
"The ability to share evidentiary video through External Sharing to the Commonwealth Attorney has proven
invaluable for our agency," said Detective Melissa Clemens from the Newport News Police Department, one of the beta testing
agencies during the past several months. "Because we no longer need to burn disks and devote officer time to transporting
them around, we can re-focus those resources on other pressing police work. Most importantly, using this new technology has
increased the number of cases that end in plea deals. This reduces our officers' time in court since we can get the evidence in
front of the prosecutors immediately."
"This new functionality modernizes a time and money wasting process, by erasing inefficiencies and giving time back to officers
so they can focus on actual police work, not administrative activities," said Jason Droege, President of
In addition to leveraging the cloud for its secure data center, draws on wearable technology and smart-phone
applications for its arsenal of digital-evidence collection and management tools available to law enforcement.
AXON body worn video cameras allow officers to easily capture video evidence that then seamlessly uploads to their agencies' account. Additionally, EVIDENCE Mobile™, a free application supported on iOS™ and Android™, turns
officers' smart phones into user-friendly, evidence-capturing devices, with secure photo, video and audio-recording
"While law enforcement agencies collect and manage growing amounts of digital evidence each year, very little technological
innovation has come forward to address this pressing need," said Droege. " is the only technology transforming
the way digital evidence is collected and handled. Ultimately we want to save agencies time and money, increase transparency
with the public, and help solve more crimes."
