Update: Large Emergency Event Digital Information Repository Test

Please consider taking a few minutes on April 10th to participate in the LEEDIR Operational Test!

What: LEEDIR (Large Emergency Event Digital Information Repository) Operational Test

When: Thursday, April 10, 2014 - 9:00am - Noon (Pacific Time)

How: Simply upload a random 1-3 minute video or still images shot with your cell phone, laptop, iPad, or computer. The video can be of anything. Please consider your agency policy and local laws regarding capturing video of the public without their consent.

NOTE: This is an operational test and NOT a human research project. The purpose is to test the system’s ability to accept large amounts of digital information (video) from diverse sources. All data will be purged at the end of the test.

The LEEDIR Eyewitness Platform INVITES YOUR PARTICIPATION! See: HTTP://leedir.us/howitworks for additional information.

The LEEDIR technology enables law enforcement and relief agencies to receive and rapidly analyze eyewitness videos and photos submitted by citizens during large emergency events.

Your participation in this exercise is being requested to help simulate a level of eyewitness photo and video submissions that would be expected during a major emergency event.

Law enforcement agencies around the nation have been invited to submit photos and videos to the LEEDIR platform through the LEEDIR website (leedir.us), iPhone app (available now at the App Store) or the Android app (available March 23rd at the Google Play Store).

As submissions are uploaded, investigators at the LASD Cyber Investigations Center (CIC) will review, manage, analyze and distribute the photos and videos as they would during a real major emergency event, to simulate better information flow to their emergency response teams and to “gather evidence”. During the event, analytics and statistics will be published, followed by a press conference at Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau to broadcast the results.
