This webinar is designed to explore the endless possibilities of using tablets in your investigations.

There are various reasons for investigators to use tablets during investigations, whether public, private, law enforcement fire or military related.
Ø Documentation is the original work product when submitting work to the prosecutor, DA, ADA, Solicitor, U.S. Attorney, Insurance or military attorneys, or other applicable experts.
Ø When ask for originals the response should be, these are my originals I documented at the scene. Now there is nothing else to compare them with such as written documentation for perceived discrepancies.
Ø There is no need to return to your agency/company, or home to retype original work. This saves time, duplicate documentation, and two sets of documents for discovery.
Ø The investigator can speak to the forms by using voice recognition which eliminates typing photo logs, entry logs and other pertinent documentation.
Ø We will discuss how to move forms to and from OneDrive and advantages available to investigators.
Ø Each attendee will be provided fillable forms and the explanation of using a tablet, whether Android, IOS, Windows 10, Surface Pro, MacBook etc. with the provided forms, or your agency /company forms.
Ø A list and examples of apps will be discussed and their ability to enhance the tablet experience.
