DIGITAL EVIDENCE MANAGEMENT (DEM) FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
Polaris by Utility is a seamless, all-in-one evidence management system setting a new standard for tracking and backing up the truth in a prove-it-to-me world growing more complex every day. Formerly known as AVailWeb, Polaris is a powerful virtual command center that guides your team with total transparency.
Polaris provides a seamless transfer of information between all devices as an evidence ecosystem. The system is highly configurable and policy-driven, allowing agencies to manage, administrate, and customize settings centrally.
Polaris allows multiple videos to be shown from different devices simultaneously in the same interface. In addition, the GPS data from each incident provides situational awareness of patrol vehicles and officers on a live map view.
Devices automatically offload video to the CJIS compliant cloud, allowing instantaneous viewing capabilities.
Cloud-based software makes releasing critical footage quickly effortless by automatically redacting video and audio evidence hours to protect privacy rights before being shared or exported.
Polaris allows your pre-existing CAD platforms to expand quickly by utilizing data from those systems to automate the recording of BodyWorn and Rocket videos. It provides differing levels of camera activation based on department policy and other user-defined rules.
Our all-in-one solution manages officers quickly and effectively, track assets in real-time, configures devices remotely, and displays aggregate fleet reports.
Imports or creates map overlays for occasions like PredPol, Geofences, and more for extra patrolling or high crime areas.

Polaris by Utility, is a cloud-based digital evidence management solution that allows users to securely store captured evidence and offers SmartRedaction™.
Formerly known as AVaiLWEB, Polaris allows agencies to upload, analyze and manage evidence including video, audio, documents, photos, metadata, phone data, security camera footage, and more. Agencies can manage camera registry programs within the platform featuring a simple process to request digital evidence from citizens and have files uploaded to the case directly. Additionally, the platform allows for the intake of evidence from third-party systems allowing agencies to utilize one DEMS platform for all forms of evidence, further streamlining law enforcement workflow, expediting the digital evidence intake process and ultimately ensuring that officers spend less time behind a desk and more time within the communities they serve.
Designed to enable agencies to gather disparate digital evidence into one unified view, the updated Polaris platform expands the types of data that can be uploaded and displayed to users with capability to manage video, audio, documents, photos, metadata, phone data, security camera footage and more. The advanced technology also allows citizens to upload data and evidence to the system if requested by investigators.
