The amount of digital evidence in police investigations is growing rapidly, causing significant backlogs in forensic laboratories. Tracks Inspector allows investigating officers an early review of case data, so forensic laboratories can focus their time on more complicated investigations with a more technical focus.
Andrew Krauze at CCL: “Even if the number of digital forensics experts were to double, that would not be enough to solve the problem. Almost all police investigations now require analysis of digital data, with the total amount of smartphones, tablets and computers on the rise. Trying to stem that tide with a few specialists won’t work. It is time for a change in the way the police work, every investigator should be able to quickly and cost effectively analyse digital forensic evidence.”
Tracks Inspector simplifies the investigation of digital forensic evidence. Frank Coggrave, senior consultant at Fox-IT and former VP of forensics specialist, Guidance Software: “We have taken the expertise of Fox-IT and combined our many years of experience in digital forensics investigations into one smart piece of software called Tracks Inspector. It is a collaborative, web-based solution that presents digital evidence in a clear and consistent way, while preserving a forensic copy of that digital evidence in the background. Investigators without a technical background can now review evidence at an early stage.”
