Police departments are collecting massive amounts of video data –mostly from cops’ body cameras. A recent Office of Justice Programs report found resource issues surrounding body-worn cameras adoption were considerable, specifically data storage and management due to the enormous amount of video data that must be stored properly and securely.
One of the most-effective and reliable options to store digital data is through cloud storage, said Richard Zak, director of public safety and justice solutions for Microsoft Corp. The company recently collaborated with VIEVU on a body camera cloud solution for law enforcement. Zak said the work is an example of how VIEVU’s body cameras and Microsoft’s cloud solutions can work together to help deliver secure solutions for law enforcement.
