Being able to conduct a child interview properly requires a unique skillset and proper training. After that, you need to make sure you have the right interview recording equipment for the job. But many teams find that they hit a roadblock with the third step—sharing their interview evidence with law enforcement isn’t always straight-forward or convenient.
How Quickly Can You Deliver Evidence?
The concept of “instant” communication has been around for decades with email and texting. Unfortunately, these advances haven’t exactly reached public safety professionals right away. Too many child advocacy groups are still relying on flash drives and on-site storage to save their interview evidence. And this is leaving all of their casework vulnerable to security risks. Worse, it’s slowing down the process for getting a case in front of the court.
Making the switch to a smart Cloud Solution gives child advocacy centers the tools they need to work effectively and collaborate with the other parties working on a case. With the Cloud, you’re actually able to communicate in real-time, online. It’s a secure way to review your interviews, add notes, and even make redactions. Everything is in one place.
Key Cloud Benefits for Child Advocacy Centers
There are a few things to keep in mind as you start to review your different options for a Cloud Solution. One of the main differentiators is whether the Cloud is being used simply for storage, or whether it’s giving you other features too. Sometimes it helps to think of a good Cloud Solution in terms of an online portal. You want a tool that’s accessible anywhere you have an internet connection. Then you can log in and manage your case at any time. Plus, you’ll be able to easily share your digital evidence and collaborate with the police department or legal teams.
The right solution will even track your chain of evidence for you and provide redundant storage to help give you peace of mind. No one wants to lose an interview. With your digital evidence secure in the Cloud, your agency can finally have a streamlined system.
