The concept of digital briefs and virtual courts has been widely discussed by government agencies, law enforcement and litigation firms for years. COMtrac’s CEO, Craig Doran discusses how COVID-19 accelerated this transformation.
The transition to virtual courtrooms is going to need a more effective and efficient medium to streamline processes. Digital Briefs will be instrumental in achieving that transition successfully. The stakeholders and end users of the digital brief of evidence are not limited to the courtroom.
The impact of the move towards the alternative remote workplace environments will be significant challenge to agencies which have regulatory investigation roles. Now more then ever, without the normal support of workplace peers and close supervision from management and supervisors, the agency will need to set up environments that will encourage and drive 'consistency' in effective investigation management methodologies.
