Police Work. Simplified.

From gathering evidence to investigation

to evidence presentation.

Increasingly more and more police forces are relying on digital evidence such as photos or videos. As a result thousands of files are generated every day. These files need to be legally archived, and processed in a way to ensure protection from tampering. Furthermore, editing capabilities and legally secured distribution in a tamper-proof manner are needed. A complete solution such as SMARTPOLICE simplifies working with digital evidence by optimising processes, saving time and dramatically reducing costs.

Securing an accident or crime scene, recording the case and detailing evidence are all part of everyday police work. The authorities document what has happened and talk to witnesses. Your digital evidence (e.g. crime scene photos or witness interviews) needs to be easily, securely and centrally stored, then legally administered in a secure way and rapidly provided or distributed. For these tasks Police forces require a professional digital evidence management solution that is tailored to their specific needs.

SMARTPOLICE from futureLAB is the complete solution for digital evidence, covering all the steps: from gathering evidence to investigation to evidence presentation.

  • SEARCH Success

    The rapid dissemination of photo and video material (e.g. perpetrator, vehicles, stolen property) to all other units via the first engaged unit at the scene increases the chances of catching the perpetrator. For capital crimes or major events all images or videos are immediately made available to the situation centre as well as each workplace if necessary.


    Login information is encrypted, images are digitally signed and access information or manipulations are logged. Communication is encrypted and protected. Users only work with copies; all originals are saved in a way that is secured against falsification and tampering.

  • Investigation SUCCESS

    The rapid delivery of crime scene images and videos protects evidence and optimises the securing of evidence and evaluation. Because the images are immediately available, the criminal investigation department can conduct searches that are more targeted and efficient. Photos of missing persons will immediately be shared with search teams and investigators.
