SECURED CITIES A traditional mid- size police department with just a couple hundred officers typi- cally will have about 100 terabytes of digital evidence, enough for a couple of robust servers to handle. But that's chang- ing quickly. Add in higher quality data from body-worn cameras and in-car cameras, crime scene footage, sur- veillance cameras, highway patrol helicopter cameras, video captured on smartphones and, soon, drones armed with cameras, and the organization now can have as much as three petabytes of video data that needs to be managed, stored, transmitted, secured, archived, analyzed and searched.
