NICE and Law Enforcement Veterans to Address Investigative Big Data Challenges on Panel at IACP LEIM


May 19, 2016

Paramus, New Jersey, – May 19, 2016 – Three law enforcement experts with decades of experience in investigations are teaming up to take on the topic of how to address the challenge of collecting, analyzing, sharing, and managing evidence at the 2016 International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Law Enforcement Information Management (LEIM) conference in Dallas, Texas on May 25. NICE Systems, a provider of public safety and enterprise software solutions, will lead the session​, “Big Data: Gearing up for What’s Next in Digital Investigations,” which will highlight how the growth in digital silos is creating a big data problem for police departments, and complicating investigations. Jerry Rodriguez, NICE’s Law Enforcement Business Development Manager, will speak along with Colonel Garnell Green, formerly with the Baltimore PD, and Captain Paul Vernon of the Los Angeles Police Department.


Jerry Rodriguez, formerly the Deputy Police Commissioner for the Baltimore Police Department, has nearly three decades of law enforcement experience. He will be joined by Colonel Garnell Green, a 26-year law enforcement veteran and retired colonel with the Baltimore Police Department, and Captain Paul Vernon, a 27-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department and the commanding officer of the West Valley Police Division.


Police departments everywhere are investing in digital policing initiatives. But the resulting growth of digital silos – body-worn camera video, CCTV, LPR, crowdsourced data, and others – is creating a big data problem. The proliferation of digital content has outpaced the tools to manage it. Investigators often resort to painstakingly manual methods to collect, analyze and piece data together from proprietary systems. Departments are also grappling with how to cost effectively and securely store this big data, on-premise or in the cloud. In this session, Jerry, Garnell and Paul will share experiences and provide practical advice on how to overcome these challenges.
