Forensic Interviewing

Forensic interviews are the first step in most child victim cases. An interviewer asks a child questions to determine whether they have enough information to go to court. During the interview, the interviewer will record the session in a safe and child-friendly place.

Forensic interviewing happens at a Child Advocacy Center after reports are made to multi-disciplinary teams (MDTs) like Child Protective Services (CPS), law enforcement, and health services. The child may be a witness to a crime or a victim themself.

To carry out these interviews, law enforcement and Child Advocacy Centers need Interview Recording Software to help capture the childā€™s testimony and share the information with other multi-disciplinary teams privately and securely.

Build the Evidence You Need While Protecting Their Identity

BEI helps Child Advocacy Centers store and transfer sensitive information provided by children during forensic interviews.

  • One-touch recording
  • Remote start/stop

Cloud Storage & Backup

Forensic interview recording software helps capture a childā€™s testimony without requiring them to repeat and relive the experience. If there are gaps in the testimony, law enforcement agents can ask new questions relevant to the case.Ā For victim video testimony to be admissible in court, there must be an unbroken chain of evidence which the forensic interviewing recording software provides.

Benefits of Forensic Interviewing Recording Software

The main benefits of deploying forensic interviewing recording software include the following:

Protects the child

The software allows you to capture a high-quality narration of events from the childā€™s point of view. In the cases of abuse, itā€™s important to capture the information the first time to prevent them from reliving the experience. They should only have to tell their story once and not repeat it again and again, as typically happens to witnesses in other cases.

BEI cares deeply about protecting children and supporting multi-disciplinary teams involved in capturing forensic interviews. We provide secure, reliable, and easy interview recording software. That makes our software the perfect fit for Child Advocacy Centers.

The secure systems ensure that only authorized personnel can access, view, and transmit the recordings thus protecting the identity of the children. The software has in-built authentication protocols and user rights management structure.

Integrates seamlessly with cloud management systems

Forensic interviewing recording software makes it easy to import videos into cloud management systems directly. The process is seamless and eliminates the chance of having duplicate interview videos.

The integration allows quick uploads to the cloud management system without downloading the videos and protecting the victims identity even further.

Easy to use on both smartphones and tablets

The software is suitable for use on both smartphones and tablets. You can remotely access the interview files as well as easily capture the video and audio directly onto the cloud.
