SWGIT Mission

The mission of the Scientific Working Group on Imaging Technology (SWGIT) is to facilitate the integration of imaging technologies and systems within the criminal justice system (CJS) by providing best practices and guidelines for the capture, storage, processing, analysis, transmission, output of image and archiving.

A goal of the SWGIT is to engage the entire law enforcement imaging community in the development of these guidelines. Please review these documents carefully and let us have your feedback. Thank you for your consideration. For instruction on how to provide feedback click here
