Categorizing Digital Evidence in Digital Evidence Management System

Managing digital files stored on your system is difficult. But adding custom attributes makes your digital evidence files easily searchable.

Done with the storage of massive digital evidence files? Wondering how to organize them and make them quickly searchable for you whenever needed? We have the answer - Custom Attributes!

It is overwhelming and time-consuming to find digital evidence files when you need them. Instead of focusing more on the entire investigation process you just got lost in searching for the relevant case files.

According to a recent survey from Wakefield Research

Have you ever thought about how to organize digital evidence and what is the best way to do that? And how to search for the digital evidence files quickly?

For example, a law enforcement officer wants to search for a robbery case that happened last week from thousands of stored digital evidence files. How is this possible with just one click?

You can do this by assigning a specific attribute or property to it such as case no, publishing date or you can add relevant tags, category names etc.

This article will clarify how to organize digital evidence files through custom attributes. Why should law enforcement agencies use them to organize and categorize important evidence files and how does VIDIZMO help you to categorize and instantly search for an evidence file?

How to Organize and Categorize Digital Evidence Files?

Firstly, you can create multiple case folders. You can handle digital evidence files within these folders by assigning custom attributes such as incidence no, case no to each evidence file. Custom attributes appear as filters and help to improve search visibility of your uploaded digital evidence files.

Researchers have concluded that:

“Ultimately, the researchers concluded the best system involves folders *and* tags... (we can) use tags to make them highly findable.”
