How Detego Can Help Police Forces Obtain Critical Digital Evidence And Speed Up Investigations

Law enforcement agencies worldwide are struggling to contend with increasing quantities of crimes connected to digital devices. Rising levels of cyber and digital crime are estimated to cost the world $6 trillion annually as of 2022, and the number of digital devices used to facilitate criminal activities is accelerating at an incredible pace.

To pursue justice in this digital-first environment, law enforcement teams must be able to swiftly gather and analyse evidence from a range of devices including computers, laptops, smartphones, IoT-connected devices, drones, smart speakers and loose media.

Fortunately, the Detego Digital Forensics ecosystem is built from the ground up to accelerate and enhance investigations in this increasingly complex space. From record-setting acquisition times when it comes to retrieving critical data through Detego’s patented Ballistic Imager technology (the world’s fastest imaging tool), to powerful AI-driven analytics and advanced automation features,  Detego is empowering police forces to do their crucial work more effectively in the field as well as in lab-based settings.
