Who Benefits from Veritone Contact
OfficersVeritone 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 StaffCalifornia 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.
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.
Veritone Contact was developed in close collaboration with the California State DOJ as well as key city law enforcement agencies to deliver an intelligent application which greatly reduces officer data collection time, minimizes review efforts, with flexibility for command staff to collect supplemental information for training and other constituent transparency initiatives.
