BLUE Digital Evidence Management
The rise in digital technology continues to multiply the workload, processes, and operational costs associated with police services. The BLUE Digital Evidence Management Solution (BLUE DEM) by Panasonic harnesses technology to change the way officers serve their community. Informative dashboards enable police chiefs to be connected to their data for thoughtful decision making at any time and from anywhere. Storage management is automated with metadata tags, enabling police IT managers to streamline how they track and manage digital evidence. Front-line officers can focus their time protecting the community by spending less time with notes and digital files at the station.

Simplified evidence management
In the field
Panasonic enables police to harness technology to increase productivity as they handle their daily duties. The BLUE DEM mobile app easily captures photo and video evidence, obtains witness statements, and features notes with tags that go directly to the RMS. With BLUE DEM, front-line officers can collect richer digital evidence, receive public evidence through a secure link and spend more time connecting with the community.
In the Car
Police officers are constantly on-the-go serving their community and a lot of their time is spent in the vehicle. From the Toughbook to the Arbitrator 360° evidence capture system, Panasonic ensures officers are equipped with the best technology. BLUE Digital Evidence Management sits at the center of our robust ecosystem of solutions and its intuitive interface enables police services to track and manage the annual increase of digital evidence.
In the Court
The Crown Attorney evidence sharing feature makes the method of securely sharing evidence a fast and seamless process. BLUE DEM maintains a high level of security for access to digital evidence files with a full audit trail, while still making it easier for members of the Crown Attorney to analyze the digital evidence to build a robust case.
In the Station
Police stations are continually required to adapt to the changing technology used by front-line officers and office civilians. BLUE DEM’s unique architecture embraces efficiency by automatically storing evidence on premise or in the cloud based on the metadata. With a built-in reporting functionality, users can create reports for police operations management.
