The Public Safety Primer on Cloud Technology is a high-level primer for law enforcement and public safety communities regarding video and the cloud environment. With the quantity of video evidence now available, storage is a significant problem for record management systems and bandwidth capability. Obtaining video from a major event is often problematic for law enforcement and public safety agencies without the capability to request and store public video submissions. As such, agencies are turning to cloud environments as a solution for emergencies and major incidents to address video-related issues including storage, cataloging, conversion, and real-time analysis. Law enforcement and public safety agencies need to be educated on cloud technology for video and versed on associated considerations, particularly as more vendors enter this field. Responsively, the Public Safety Primer on Cloud Technology was developed as an easy-to-read frequently asked questions (FAQ) guide, answering common questions in a straightforward manner. It features information on the services that cloud environments can provide as well as guidance for agencies considering contracts with cloud vendors. In addition, this product includes a glossary of cloud terminology and a list of recommended resources for further reading. Perhaps, most importantly, this resource includes critical information on privacy, security, and data ownership.
