Abstract

A description of a system that allows the collection of evidence by a police force provided by a number of sources. This system allows for rich media to be made available for an 'event' whereby the holder of the rich media does not need to send it in its entirety to the police force. It is only retrieved when needed. The collections of references to the data is held by the police. Retrieval is either direct one to one, or in a more complex environment the device holding the data forms part of a virtual data grid.
