DAM solutions provider Fotoware has recently published an article outlining the use of their Digital Evidence Management (DEM) system, which is now being used by over 80% of UK police forces.  It’s a fascinating look at how centralised and digitised evidence is being used by multiple departments, including forensic staff, responding officers, detectives and judges.  A supporting E-book, entitled ‘Digital Evidence Management for Police’ is also available as a free download.
