"We are excited about the deployment of EVIDENCE.com across the multiple agencies of the Salt Lake Valley Police Alliance," said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER International. "The EVIDENCE.com solution will enable seamless, secure information sharing across these partner agencies that would have been very complex and expensive to achieve with older 'build-on-premise' IT systems. We are grateful to Chief Burbank and the Salt Lake Valley Police Alliance for taking the leadership to be the first coordinated multi-agency deployment of EVIDENCE.com," concluded Smith.
"Our technical teams are prepared to work closely with the Alliance to refine the inter-agency workflows within EVIDENCE.com," said Jason Droege, General Manager of Video and Cloud. "The advanced cloud-based architecture of EVIDENCE.com will allow us to bring these multiple agencies online rapidly. Together with the Alliance, we will refine and introduce new features every 90 days, accelerating the collaboration capabilities of these partner agencies far beyond what could have been achieved with older technology models," concluded Droege.
