OneNote: Digital Case Management

Simply Managing, Storing and Sharing Criminal Case Materials.

Course Overview
Criminal investigations are more complex today than 20 years ago.   The amount and variety of data, materials and ultimately evidence, in criminal case management has grown along with the rise of laptops, tablets and cell technology.  Today, a basic criminal case can easily contain: audio and video files, cell phone and tower data, financial spreadsheets, and hundreds of documents; complex cases contain even more. But criminal case management for many agencies today is often still connected to a manila folder of printed, analog pages of text and images.
