Evidence.com “will allow the public to easily and quickly submit digital evidence directly to police”, the service said in a release.

“The goal of this technology is to increase our effectiveness and efficiency in relation to the collection and analysis of digital evidence,” the manager of information systems service said.

“Initially this technology will be deployed in relation to “Gas Drive-offs” and other theft investigations with the goal of expanding to include other types of investigations in the near future,” Jonathan Green explained.

The statement added: “This change comes as we seek to deliver the most effective, efficient and innovative service possible.”
