More than meets the eye...Overcoming challenges when receiving citizen submitted video files

More than meets the eye...Overcoming challenges when receiving citizen submitted video files

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EST)


Public evidence submission portals like Axon Citizen, NICE Investigate and others provide the ability for the public to easily share video files from cell phones with law enforcement.  While a great solution for promoting efficiency and community engagement, citizen submission portals present unique challenges when authenticating video.  These challenges are often compounded by the lack of direct access to the recording device and “original” recording.  How do investigators know that the complete, untrimmed and unedited video is received?  How do we authenticate citizen submitted videos for admission in court?  While citizen submitted video may “look” original, this webinar will highlight what actually occurs when video is transmitted through a mobile device web browser, and how to effectively authenticate received video, even without the recording device.
