Does Your Investigative Analytics Solution Enable Efficient Collaboration?
Resolve cases faster with effective internal and external collaboration. Check if your solution has these three advanced capabilities.
When it comes to solving complex crimes, being able to collaborate effectively and efficiently can be a key factor in case resolution.
Having a powerful tech solution can enable faster and simpler collaboration between teams within the same agency or even across agencies. This enhances the overall capabilities of investigative teams – leading to more comprehensive, accurate, and timely investigations.
The right investigative solution should have features that empower collaboration so that law enforcement agencies have sufficient digital intelligence to create strong case narratives, close more cases, and reduce crime.
This checklist highlights three key capabilities an investigative analytics tool must offer to enable seamless collaborative processes. It must have features that allow you to:
• Collect and consolidate data from multiple sources for easy review
With the advanced capabilities of Pathfinder, and specifically our latest version Pathfinder X, agencies can develop and highlight leads from multiple mobile devices and other data sources. Additionally, embedded internal/external databases and watchlists in the investigative tool enables investigators to access internal and/or external knowledge faster.
By leveraging the abilityto collaborate with different databases like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), Project VIC, and the Child Abuse Image Database (CAID), child exploitation items and potential child sexual abuse materials (CSAM) can be identified faster. This feature is critical for resolving cases related to internet crimes against children (ICAC).
• Build strong case narratives
To build a strong case in the courtroom, investigators who must be able to clarify and build strong case narratives for the understanding of judges and juries.
Using Pathfinder X’s report builder, investigators can brainstorm insights with intuitive data-tagging and note-taking functionality, then build customizable visualized reports for internal and external stakeholders. These case narratives can be strengthened further with additional Pathfinder X features such as location and person resolution, which enables investigators to build a full picture of a subject.
• Collaborate and share insights
High profile criminal investigations can involve multiple agencies from different states and specialties collaborating on a single case. This can result in a multitude of issues ranging from siloed information and communication barriers that hinder case resolutions.
Pathfinder X allows agencies to resolve these issues by connecting teams internally and externally. Partnered agencies can share case reports and gain access to consolidated and actionable insights, which means investigators can search across cases, jurisdictions, and agencies to find repeat offenders. This can be highly impactful in resolving crimes.
For example, the Gulf Coast Technology Center (GCTC) was able to uncover a firearms distribution syndicate from a “simple vehicle theft case” by collaborating across agencies with Cellebrite Path.
With its enhanced collaboration capabilities, Pathfinder X is designed to offer all these benefits out-of-the-box without the need for further setup. Use Cellebrite Pathfinder to collaborate across teams and agencies with capabilities that enable you to tell a strong case narrative, visualize timelines, and share comprehensive and coherent updates.
