In the wake of the increasingly widespread adoption of body-worn cameras, many major cities are expressing concern over their IT infrastructure, bandwidth capabilities, and other issues. As a recent MCC/MCSA survey shows, the dominant theme in conversations surrounding digital evidence has been uncertainty.

Most agencies that are planning to deploy (or have already deployed) a body camera program don’t have the pre-existing capabilities to store and manage the flood of digital evidence that body cameras can bring. Because limited resources exist with law enforcement specifically in mind, agencies can find it difficult to make an informed decision when comparing onpremise and cloud solutions. 

A new whitepaper from TASER identifies five areas that are critical for any command staff or IT team to explore when deciding to store their agency’s digital evidence on-premise or in the cloud with a Software-as-a-Service solution. The five areas of focus include security, scalability, time to deploy, maintenance, and costs.

You will also find a “Key Questions” guide at the end of the whitepaper that will hopefully arm you with the right questions to consider and help you make a more informed decision about storing and managing your growing amounts of data.
