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 child’s testimony and share the information with other multi-disciplinary teams privately and securely.

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 child’s point of view. In the cases of abuse, it’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.
Uses of a Forensic Interviewing Recording Software
Child advocacy centers use forensic interview recordings as crucial evidence recording of child witnesses. Therefore, the interviewer must get a clear and accurate child witness recording that is admissible in a court of law without being complicated.
Forensic Interview recording solutions can go where you need them to be. You can collect the witness testimony both in the CAC center with an interview room recording system or go to them with the mobile recording software.
