How time flies

If you started your LE career in 1994, the tech world has changed dramatically.



All of your tech was in separate devices. Video cameras were just video cameras. Tablets were just tablets. Etc. Now, it's all in your phone - or your suspect's phone.


Just 10 years ago, you found storage devices containing around 128mb. Now, you're finding them to be 128gb - and bigger.

How are you and your agency dealing with the blistering pace of this change. Does your agency's SOP's reflect the changes to technology and society? Do your evidence storage / sharing protocols reflect these massive increases in size? Does your current vendor have the products you'll need to take you into the next few years?

But, for now, how do you share the 64gb bin file from your latest iPhone dump? If you're not asking these questions, you're already far behind.
