Back at number 7 on the quiet neighborhood street, the officer on-scene collects and uploads evidence: pictures of the overturned furniture and bruising on the wife’s face and body, signed statements from neighbors about other disturbances from that house, video of the outraged suspect shouting threats at police. With tuServ, officers back at the station are able to see and review the materials remotely and provide timely guidance and advice for the officer. And the quality of the evidence and the clear integrity and transparency of the gathering process can help make for a stronger case in court.
In Cambridgeshire, where around 2,500 officers serve a community of 900,000 residents, the department has already seen a significant savings in time and increases in officer productivity. Greatly reduced travel time and more efficient use of operational hours have also made the department more cost-effective.
Better yet, they’re able to solve more crimes, faster. “With tuServ, officers can share information in ways we haven’t before, and that means better evidence, better outcomes, and, we believe, a safer public,” says Andy Gipp.
And that’s the best outcome of all.
