The UCLA Department of Information Studies received a National Forum grant to bring together stakeholders responsible for the management of new forms of digital audiovisual evidence used by law enforcement. The project will help set specific priorities for the management and preservation of evidence generated by the widespread use of surveillance cameras, smartphones, and bodycams. The goals of the project are to identify areas of skill development for information professionals in law enforcement agencies, libraries, and archives, and to build institutional capacity for education that addresses information professionals' management of digital information and open data. By holding a three-day workshop with participants from a range of fields, the project will facilitate information exchange and collaboration between law enforcement, and LIS professionals.
