How It Works
When a large emergency event occurs, law enforcement and relief agencies can activate the LEEDIR platform for FREE to start receiving and analyzing eyewitness photos and videos.
Step 1: Activate LEEDIR
Local law enforcement or relief agency (i) can activate LEEDIR from its free LEEDIR account with a few clicks or (ii) can request activation if it does not already have a LEEDIR account (new agencies will be given permissioned access to a private LEEDIR media management/analysis interface). Please, register now for your agency's account before an emergency event occurs. You can also join a free Training and Certification webinar.
Step 2: LEEDIR is activated
The LEEDIR upload applications (LEEDIR mobile apps and website) are activated with the appropriate request for eyewitness to submit photos, videos and text.
Step 3: Citizens are notified
Law enforcement or relief agency notifies the media to broadcast the request for eyewitness photo/video submissions. Citizens are instructed to visit the LEEDIR website or download the LEEDIR mobile apps to submit information.
Step 4: Citizens upload
LEEDIR provides upload tools that work on all devices, including smart phones, tablets and computers.
Step 5: Case Management and Analysis
Videos and photos are rapidly evaluated and categorized by multiple analysts for immediate distribution among participating agencies. Ongoing investigative strategies and theories can be immediately distributed to all agencies for collaborative consideration.
Step 6: Solicit eyewitness feedback
If citizens choose to provide their contact details (anonymous submissions can be allowed), the agency can contact eyewitness submitters for any additional photos, videos or information of the scene.
Step 7: De-activation
After the emergency event and analysis of the submitted information is complete, the agency can (i) download the desired photo/video evidence and then the remaining data will be removed or (ii) choose to pay a monthly fee for the continued storage of this content.
