Artificial intelligence technology will help law enforcement teams in dealing with data. The Safariland Group, global provider of safety and survivability products and the parent company of VIEVU and Veritone, a leading provider of artificial intelligence solutions, recently announced their intent to enter an agreement that will integrate their product offerings to apply artificial intelligence capabilities to uniquely extract and process crucial data from police body-worn camera footage. The Veritone Platform will be available to Safariland’s law enforcement agency customers as a complement to VIEVU’s body-worn cameras, accessories and software, later this year.

The integration will allow VIEVU’s customers to upload large volumes of video and audio data into the Veritone Platform and process them in near real-time, thus enabling law enforcement personnel to rapidly extract actionable information for use in investigations, monitoring and training, as well as to respond more quickly and efficiently to public record requests.

Chad Steelberg, Veritone CEO, said in the company’s press release: “The Veritone Platform will enable law enforcement agencies to save thousands of hours of manual searching by using intelligent audio and video analysis, allowing them to focus time and resources on more mission-critical tasks. we’ve long admired VIEVU’s products and its dedication to innovation, and we look forward to working together to advance public safety with artificial intelligence technology.”

“Joining Veritone’s best-in-class artificial intelligence capabilities with VIEVU’s leading body-worn camera and video solutions has the potential to bring critical, world-class technology into the hands of thousands of law enforcement personnel,” said Terry O’Shea, Safariland CEO. “The combined offering of the two companies allows law enforcement agencies to look through data with never before seen accuracy, security, and reliability, greatly reducing the number of hours needed to review footage”.
