In response to COVID-19 and to ensure continuity of police operations, NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) today announced it is offering NICE Investigate Xpress, part of its NICE Investigate solution suite, to police departments at no cost for the next 90 days. NICE Investigate Xpress can be deployed in as little as 48 hours.
Driving digital transformation for over 40,000 investigators and police officers around the world and operating in the cloud, NICE Investigate Xpress enables law enforcement personnel to do much of their case-building work remotely for social distancing and continuity of operations, minimizing direct contact with both people and physical evidence to enhance personal safety.
Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE, stated, “Interpersonal contact is the nature of the job for many who work in law enforcement, but in today’s unprecedented situation with COVID-19, this is causing worries for the safety of officers, investigators, and other personnel. Additionally, potential contamination of evidence, including USB drives, DVDs and other physical media has also become a mounting concern for investigators who handle them daily. Through the rapid deployment of NICE Investigate Xpress, police departments can eliminate these concerns and protect their staff, while ensuring that vital investigative work continues to get done.”
Scalable, fast and easy-to-implement, NICE Investigate Xpress is an all-in-one digital evidence management and investigation solution that:
- Removes the ‘physical touch’ from digital evidence by eliminating the need to copy evidence onto CDs and USB drives.
- Enables employees to work remotely and securely to support social distancing. Investigators, analysts, video tech crews, discovery teams and communications bureau personnel can all work effectively from home.
- Reduces face-to-face contact during evidence collection by helping investigators reduce their travel and public contact. CCTV video evidence, 911 audio recordings and other evidence can be secured remotely.
- Reduces potential virus spread among different units by enabling employees to share information digitally.
- Minimizes repeat in-person contact with victims and witnesses by recording phone, video and Skype interviews from home and linking these recordings electronically to cases.
- Enables secure, electronic sharing of case evidence with DAs thereby minimizing face-to-face contact and handling of physical media.
