Who Benefits from Veritone Contact

Veritone Contact helps officers quickly and efficiently collect RIPA compliant stop data. Built in conjunction with the California DOJ and several city law enforcement agencies, Contact guides officers quickly through the required questions needed to collect observational data.
Command Staff
California AB 953 requires each law enforcement agency to ensure no PII is delivered to the DOJ’s Stop Data Collection System (SDCS). Contact provides command staff with the ability to quickly batch review all officer observational remarks for possible PII inclusion prior to submission.

Developed in close collaboration with the California State DOJ as well as key city law enforcement agencies, this intelligent stop data collection application greatly reduces officer data collection time, minimizes review effort, and provides command staff immediate insight for training and other constituent transparency initiatives.

Veritone Contact Helps California Law Enforcement Agencies Meet RIPA Obligations

Under the California Racial and Identity Profiling Act, by 2022, over 500 law enforcement agencies within the state will be required to collect detailed perceived demographic information during traffic or pedestrian stops.

Once collected, each law enforcement agency is responsible for ensuring that no personally identifiable information (PII) is included in the data set. Next, this information must be securely transmitted to the California State Department of Justice.

The process of collection and review is already significantly impacting the time officers are available for patrol. Further, records management teams – already inundated with increased open records requests for redacted body-worn camera footage and other evidence requests – are now overwhelmed with PII review of this information too.

Stop Data Report Creation in Two Minutes

Command staffs across the country uniformly want their officers interacting with their communities, keeping our cities and neighborhoods safe. However, compliant collection of stop data requires officers to be temporarily removed from patrol until their data entry obligations are completed. Getting officers back on patrol as quickly as possible is critical for community safety.

Many agencies are finding state-provided or other third-party stop data collection applications to be time-consuming and laborious and are now switching to Veritone Contact. In this video (less than two minutes) you will see the creation of a stop data report for a traffic stop with three contacts in the vehicle.
