Before iEvidence, there was no format for teachers, witnesses and parents to document testimony using the same Preliminary Report relied upon by law enforcement officials.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
Childcare Compliance, the nation’s leading legal compliance resource for childcare providers, agencies and unions, today introduced iEvidence, a mobile application designed to help anyone wishing to document an urgent child-related situation. This can include everything from bullying, child abuse or neglect, sports injuries, or playground incidents to school vandalism. Available from iTunes and Google Play for 99 cents, iEvidence is the only child safety app that draws on the same court-related Preliminary Report used by police for collecting evidence from on-the-scene witnesses.
“For less than a single dollar, this app can make all the difference when it comes to getting a statement admitted into evidence,” said Michelle McGinnis, founder of Childcare Compliance and a Los Angeles-based prosecutor. “We’ve given users a very unique tool. Before iEvidence, there was no format for teachers, witnesses and parents to document testimony using the same Preliminary Report relied upon by law enforcement officials. Because we understand the justice system and are experts in childcare law, we’ve created a revolutionary mobile app that makes it nearly impossible for law enforcement to dismiss a witness account of an incident involving a child.”
The app provides simple, step-by-step instructions and a unique “voice record” function to make documentation easier. Users can also embed photos into their reports and quickly compile evidence into e-mail format. iEvidence is currently on Android and iPhone in seven languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, French, Farsi, Armenian and Korean.
“For some parents, it can be a ‘David versus Goliath’ scenario, similar to what happened with Penn State University and Jerry Sandusky,” added McGinnis. “They know something happened between their child and the caregiver, but they’re up against a powerful institution and respected community member, and it can seem like a hopeless situation. Equipped with iEvidence, they’re empowered with the tools they need to compel law enforcement to act on allegations of misconduct, regardless of the accused’s influence and authority.”
iEvidence is recommended for school officials and concerned parents alike.
“Justice is about equal access to the truth. If you’re a provider or administrator, you need to keep pace with the latest means of documenting evidence. It’s now the best way to tell your side of the story and protect your childcare center,” she notes.
