Vigilant Solutions boasts faster ballistics analysis with BallisticSearch
Vigilant Solutions has revealed BallisticSearch, a new product providing law enforcement agencies with “faster and more efficient cartridge case analysis.”
BallisticSearch includes portable image capture hardware, cartridge case capture software and ballistics comparison technology. The solution enables agencies to compare evidence from crime scenes to help “generate more investigative leads, and potentially identify more suspects and the firearms they use,” according to Vigilant Solutions.
The company claims BallisticSearch can process evidence in minutes, “while other systems can take hours to process the same evidence.”
Other benefits include: a portable capture device designed to be small and lightweight for use in the field; the ability to share data across jurisdictions; and agency control over prioritization and deployment.
BallisticSearch is being introduced as part of the Learn 6.0 investigative platform, which includes Vigilant’s license plate recognition and analytics, now branded as PlateSearch, and Vigilant’s facial recognition and analytics, now branded as FaceSearch.
“We know the goal for law enforcement is to quickly analyze and compare ballistic evidence to advance investigations and make arrests before more violent crimes occur, and we believe BallisticSearch will help to interrupt the cycle of crime; thereby reducing crime,” said Shawn Smith, president and founder of Vigilant Solutions. “We have received positive feedback from departments who have reviewed BallisticSearch, and we look forward to offering it to the entire global public safety community.”
