Our Surveillance Analysts efficiently review and analyze data from an exploding range of sources. Data’s inherent sensitivity, including privileged and confidential information, means a robust combination of human and machine intelligence is required to enable the analysis and security.


Surveillance can be an extremely effective tool in the defense arsenal. When done appropriately, it can show a judge, jury, mediator or arbitrator insights, which words or documents alone cannot convey.

OKCPD Community Incident Briefing - Officer Involved Shooting 8.22.22

On August 22, 2022, at approximately 1:18 p.m., Oklahoma City Police responded to the address of 2221 SW 78th St. on reports of multiple gunshots in the area. It was learned quickly that deputies with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office had exchanged gunfire with a person at this residence while serving an eviction notice. Two of the deputies were struck by the gunfire. As responding officers arrived on scene, they learned the suspect, 35-year-old Benjamin Plank had fled the residence in a vehicle trailering a boat. It was also learned the suspect had loaded several firearms into his vehicle prior to leaving. Benjamin Plank was spotted a short distance from the scene, shortly after the shooting occurred. Oklahoma City Police attempted to stop him on traffic when he refused, initiating a pursuit. During the pursuit, while travelling northbound on S. I-35, the driver discharged rounds from a rifle at Oklahoma City Officers. Two involved officers were able to return fire toward the suspect. No injuries occurred from the gunfire. The suspect continued eastbound on Interstate-40 from Interstate-35 ultimately exiting at Air Depot Blvd. The suspect stopped at the Tinker Air Force Base gate and surrendered. Benjamin Plank was taken to an area hospital to be checked for injuries and booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center on a multitude of charges including first-degree murder. Both officers have been placed on routine paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation. Our deepest condolences go out to the community of the Oklahoma County Sherriff’s Office as well as the families of the deputies. The OCSO will release the names of the involved deputies. #lawenforcement #police #cops #publicsafety #publicrecords #news #surveillance #ediscovery #video #evidence #digitalevidence #cctv #court #trial #litigation #legislation #OIS #bodycam #bodycamera #media #Oklahoma #training #redact #redaction #sheriff #crime #safety #community #data #dataprotection #privacy #security #guns #heroes #litigationsupport #youtube #subscribe #socialmedia

Fort Worth man shot by police when he pointed rifle at officers in apartment.

An overview of the Officer Involved Shooting that occurred on Aug. 21, 2022. This investigation is ongoing and some details are limited at this time. A 39-year-old man who pointed a rifle at police was shot and seriously wounded Sunday night by a Fort Worth officer at an east Fort Worth apartment, authorities said. The Fort Worth man was shot multiple times when he pointed the rifle at the officer, police said in a news release Monday morning. Police responded just after 9:30 p.m. Sunday to a call of man threatening to kill himself with a shotgun in the 1200 block of Vincent St. The shotgun was unloaded, according to the news release. When they arrived at an apartment complex, police heard a woman in an apartment saying, “Don’t do it. Don’t do it.” Officers kicked in the door and entered the apartment, where they confronted the man, who had an AR-style rife with a collapsible stock and extended magazine, the release said. At that time, officers ordered him to drop the rifle, but he failed to do so, police said. The man raised his rifle, pointed it at officers and walked toward them, according to the release. One officer fired several times, striking the Fort Worth man. No officers or other residents were injured. The man was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital. Police learned that before officers arrived the man had tried to shoot himself with a shotgun, but there was no ammunition in the gun, according to the release. Police reports also said the man was possibly bipolar. Detectives with the major case unit are investigating the shooting. #lawenforcement #police #cops #sheriff #news #publicsafety #publicrecords #shooting #OIS #bodycam #bodycamera #video #guns #surveillance #evidence #digitalevidence #legal #cctv #training #trial #court #ediscovery #litigation #law #gdpr #ccpa #texas #video #redact #redaction #search #discover #protect #ediscovery #legaltech #security #software #youtube #data #dataprotection #privacy

Winter Park police release body camera video of deadly officer shooting at wedding reception

SUBSCRIBE: The Winter Park Police Department has released more information, including body camera video and a 911 call, from the February night when an officer shot and killed a Polk County man at his niece's wedding reception. The police department has said the purpose of sharing the video is to bring "clarity and context" to the deadly shooting. Officers were dispatched at 9:39 p.m. on Feb. 19 to the Winter Park Events Center. A 911 caller described an "irate," and possibly drunk, guest at the wedding reception. The caller told police the guest was "being violent" and later added that he pushed two people to the floor of the ballroom. "Anyone with authority is making him angry," the caller said. Video from the venue showed fellow guest bringing 39-year-old Daniel Knight, of Mulberry, outside in an apparent attempt to calm him down. Two Winter Park officers showed up. Police asked Knight to put his hands behind his back. He did not. Bystanders could be heard on video saying he was just drunk. An officer told a woman next to Knight to move away. She replied that she was his sister. "He's not gonna hurt anybody," one bystander told police. "He doesn't have any weapons." During the commotion, police could be heard asking Knight to put his hands behind his back and asking those around him to step away from him. At one point, an officer grabbed Knight. Video then showed Knight punch the officer in the head – knocking him to the ground, unconscious. At that point, the second officer unsuccessfully tried to subdue Knight with a Taser. But, investigators say Knight punched that officer in the head, as well. The second officer fell to the ground – face down – where authorities say Knight continued to strike his head. Still conscious, video showed the second officer fired his gun repeatedly – hitting Knight. Despite bystander and first responder efforts to save his life, Knight was taken to AdventHealth Orlando and pronounced dead. Both officers were taken to the hospital, too, but later released. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting. The officer who fired his weapon was put on administrative leave during the probe into the deadly night. The names of the two officers involved have not been released by the City of Winter Park, which has asserted that their identities are protected under Marsy's Law because they were victims of battery. The city said both officers were experienced, with a combined total of 47 years in law enforcement between them. Winter Park police say neither has ever been investigated for any use of force complaint. We took the video to Dr. David Thomas, a professor of forensic studies at Florida Gulf Coast University. Thomas is a retired police officer with 20 years of experience in law enforcement. Thomas says, based on his viewing, the shooting appears legally-justified. According to Thomas, both officers seemed defenseless after Knight knocked them to the ground. When the one officer's taser failed to stop Knight and Knight appeared to have kept attacking him, Thomas says the officer would have had to protect himself. "When he's getting punched in the back of the head, he's, I know he's thinking, 'I'm gonna get punched in the head. I can't protect myself if I'm unconscious,'" Thomas explained. Not everyone agrees. Black Lives Matter Restoration Polk Inc., which is assisting Knight's family, released a statement Thursday, describing Knight's death as an "unnecessary murder." "The edited video clips released only establishes that Daniel's death could have been avoided, and the Winter Park Police Department's approach to the situation should have been handled differently," the organization wrote. The group said Knight did not deserve to die. "His children should not be fatherless, his [fiancée] should not have [lost] her soulmate. His [parents] should not have had to bury their son. His siblings should no have lost their brother..." Black Lives Matter Restoration Polk Inc. added. The organization said it was standing with the Morgan & Morgan law firm, which is representing Knight's loved ones. "The only thing the video establishes is that Daniel Knight did not deserve to die; his family continues to mourn his death and we will fight for justice on their behalf," Morgan & Morgan attorneys Adrian Mendiondo and Farnita Saunders Hill added in a statement of their own. #lawenforcement #police #cops #news #publicsafety #publicrecords #sheriff #privacy #data #dataprotection #surveillance #evidence #digitalevidence #technology #video #OIS #cctv #bodycam #bodycamera #ediscovery #legaltech #legaltechnology #trial #court #military #axon #training #shooting #community #firstresponders #wedding #transparency #redact #search #discover #protect #redaction #media #legal #litigation #law #youtube
