WOLFCOM Digital Evidence Management for Law Enforcement
The WOLFCOM Evidence Management Solution is a robust and flexible digital evidence management solution that can manage your video assets, photos, audio files, and documents. A user, with proper rights and privileges, will be able to tag, view, verify integrity of the asset, generate an audit trail report, and automatically purge the files based on the department’s retention policies.
Have just one system to manage all your digital evidence.
The WOLFCOM Evidence Management Solution is designed to manage all your department’s digital evidence from body camera videos, digital pictures, in-car videos, surveillance camera videos, documents, audio recordings and other standard media files. This allows officers the ability to quickly find and view digital evidence. WOLFCOM knows that no two agencies are exactly alike. Our approach is to identify your unique challenges and develop a solution that addresses and solves problems for your department.

Finding a file is quick and easy.
The intuitive user interface is officer-friendly and simple to use. Thumbnail file preview allows you to see thumbnails of picture or preview a video to make sure you have the correct file. Having all your information easily accessible in one place allows officers to spend more time fighting crime and less time wrestling with digital files. All metadata from a file is searchable by date, times, location, camera, officer, room numbers and much more. Evidence can be viewed from any department computer on the network. Wolfcom can provide either a web-based of a client/server based solution, based on your department’s preference.
Evidence is organized by Case Number.
Law Enforcement activities are categorized by a Case Number or similar identifier; this allows the officers to organize all digital evidence from that case to a specific Case Number. So when they pull up a case, they can view all the digital evidence affiliated with that case.
Define access levels to evidence.
The WOLFCOM Evidence Management Solution allows each department to dictate what evidence can be viewed by each user. Groups and Organizations are configured to align with the policies of your department. This will all be customizable.
Always protect your chain of custody.
All activity is logged by the system. An audit trail report displays who, what, when and where files have been accessed. With this system, you will not lose a case because a break in chain of custody.
Once a file is ingested into the WOLFCOM Evidence Management Solution, the files will be stamped with a SHA2 256-bit Hash. This will assure the files will be authentic and admissible in court.
Configure file retention periods.
Only store critical information and automatically delete evidence once expired. The WOLFCOM Evidence Management Solution allows evidence to be purged from the system based upon configured retention periods or by an authorized user. Schedule retention period by evidence type or by crime type.
GPS GeoTagging Map can be viewed on software.
Since the GPS coordinated are stamped onto every video and picture file, frame by frame and picture by picture. When reviewing videos on the WOLFCOM Evidence Management Solution, you will be able to see the route of the video simultaneously on the map next to the video and as the video moves so does the dot on the map. This is valuable when reviewing video of a foot or car chase as you’ll be able to see the exact route taken as footage of the chase unfolds before you.
Maximize your storage investment.
Most system treat all digital evidence the same. They maintain it all on the same storage for the same length of time. The Wolfcom Evidence Management Solution allows you to catalog your digital evidence based on its importance. You can store evidence in either a centralized location or distributed locations, based on your preference. Digital evidence is deleted when the associated time period is expired.
