This weekend I launched a new, secure DCCTV Database for our Professional Community members.  The DME Resources Wiki was discontinued, and all content from the Wiki was migrated to the new database.

Literally tens of thousands of people visited our Wiki since I made it a public resource, and over 7 thousand of them registered with the Wiki. Unfortunately, despite the impressive numbers, only our Professional Community members were contributing.

This new members-only resource will streamline security, administration, and I truly feel provide a better user experience for our nearly 2,000 verified Professional Community members.

Thank you to all of those who have and continue to contribute to our Professional Community content and members area!

The National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS) recently published a DOJ funded report, "A Primer on Body Work Camera Technologies".

As each day passes law enforcement and government agencies struggle with managing more sources of digital evidence and multimedia, like body worn cameras. The massive amounts of data storage required have led many to finally consider secure cloud-based storage solutions, but as some have found out, despite the minimal capital investment cloud storage costs can quickly exceed the LE & IT budgets of even the largest agencies. Let's break this down and talk specifically about digital evidence and archiving.

How are you archiving all of your digital evidence today? A tiered storage solution? Hybrid cloud solution? LTO tape? Hard drives? Optical discs (i.e. CD-R, DVD+/-R, BD-R)? Lots of questions and options, so lets talk specifically to the last group; those using optical discs.

One of our members recently bought an Android-based "Smart TV" and discovered that it provided a way to manage & store IP camera footage. Below is a link to a brief presentation he put together about his experience with his new Sony TV, which he asked me to share here with the hope of raising awareness.

When attempting to collect DCCTV evidence, remember to think outside of the little black box. Thanks for sharing Mel!

I'll be in San Diego for IACP 2016 October 15th through the 18th, one of the LE industry's largest trade shows and educational events.

If you'll be attending, stop by the Ocean Systems booth (#2740) to say hello and see what we've been up to. Hope to see you there!
