IQ3 can be used for your normal interview rooms at a much-reduced cost. It can take advantage of existing infrastructure like IP cameras and take interviewing to the next level. In addition, remote interviews and investigations can be done. Detectives, investigators, police officers, and internal affair officers require detailed and precise data in order to log, maintain and present their cases.
In most incidences, it’s paper and pen or at best a digital hand-held recorder that documents the event. Writing down facts and answers to questions is far from 100% accurate. Study shows that there is a 20% error rate when comparing handwritten notes with and voice recordings. Often times witnesses and suspects are asked to travel to another location in order to be questioned and many times it is hours or days after the event.
The Misinformation Effect:
A Northwestern Medicine study involving 17 people has shown that every time we remember an event that has happened from our past, our brain networks change in ways that actually alter the recall of the event. This means the next time you remember it, you might not remember the original event but what you remembered the previous time. In addition to the above, there are other factors that can change or contaminate a person’s memory of an event. Sometimes it’s because of pressure, real or imagined, from outsiders, including relatives and friends of the witness.
Inquire IQ3 captures both audio and video at the scene of the event in real-time, thus eliminating the Misinformation Effect. Used in secure scene investigations, IQ3 enables simple recording, bookmarking, chat, and streaming from any location on an Android or IOS device via Wi-Fi or cell phone service. (based on service carrier) Events are stored and managed in a secure cloud environment for later viewing, reformatting and distribution. Activity and audit reports can also be run to ensure a true “Chain of Custody”. We understand that those in public safety, particularly detectives and investigators, are not necessarily eager to add more technology into their workflows. But with user-friendly IQ3, it is now possible to focus on their investigations while accomplishing the task quicker and with a good deal more accuracy.
