Law Enforcement Body Worn Cameras (BWC) are being widely adopted by police departments worldwide. Even private security firms are also standardizing on BWC. Many departments are considering using body cameras as a replacement for in-car DVR.
Unfortunately, just like in-car DVR systems, they lack the tools needed to manage videos and associated data. The C3 Partner management software from HD Protech provides a simple to use yet comprehensive case management system for managing camera media and data.
With the C3 Partner solution, the officer can manage, search and review historical events and case information. The primary goal is to reduce the burden of information management and allow the officer to concentrate on day to day tasks in the field where their time is a greater benefit to the community.
C3 Partner was designed from the ground up with the assistance of police officers, managers and administrators to reduce the complexity in using, managing, and administering the every growing video evidence data.

Regardless of the version you use, standalone or enterprise, C3 Partner has same user interface. And, our solutions can be integrated with different law enforcement databases.
Our goal is to support more languages for C3 Partner base on customer’s request.
Base on C3 Partner’s modular design. Adding additional languages takes less than 2 weeks.
While each hardware is manufactured by another manufacturer, we’ve co-branded the camera to assure customers that we are the single source for support and replacement.
Storage will continue to grow and will be the largest expenditure of most law enforcement budget. Therefore support low cost NAS with SATA hard drives provide the best solution for our customers.
Even if a camera is assigned to an Officer it does not mean only that Officer has to download the video and metadata. If the Officer is busy, he/she can hand off the camera to his/her partner or anyone with access to C3 Partner to upload the videos and metadata.
C3 Partner knows the data belongs to the assigned Officer will upload to the correct location. Only authorized Group or User access to the Officer are allowed to view the videos and metadata.
This does not mean anyone can upload the data. You must have an account and authorization to access C3 Partner in order to upload data.
The catalog manager allows you to select the appropriate videos and/or image files involved in an incident and associate it with a case. Even if you miss certain videos when you create a case you can go back and search all your videos at a later time and append files to an existing case.
