Welsh force enables digital evidence upload

27/05/2020

North Wales Police is encouraging members of the public to provide evidence via management platform NICE Investigate.

Speaking of its deployment of the NICE solution, a spokesperson for North Wales said: “We have trained staff in how to use [the platform] and will be able to support [the public] in uploading its evidence. This will specifically relate to CCTV, dash cams, mobile phone footage, and most things [consisting of a] moving digital image.

“The feedback from officers is really positive. They see this change being here for good and really helping them to become more effective in what they do.”

The spokesperson continued: “We will also be able to share this online evidence with our partners such as the Crown Prosecution Service, and in turn the courts. This will allow them to review it sooner and with less risk.

“North Wales Police is always thinking of better and more efficient ways to work. This has become really important in the challenging times we currently face during the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

Elsewhere in the statement, the force stated that this method of submitting digital evidence is going to become the “standard business practice” in the coming weeks.
