CAC Forensic Interview Video Evidence Management System
SCNCAC has partnered with VidaNyx to help provide Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) in South Carolina with a cloud-based digital video evidence management system for forensic interview recordings. VidaNyx supports the critical work of CACs and Multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) with a number of benefits including cost savings, time savings in procuring evidence, security in distributing interviews, efficiency in case management and much more! With these savings, CACs have more time to focus on supporting survivors’ healing. We are seeking innovative solutions to continue funding for this system in order to meet the needs of CACs, Multidisciplinary teams, and the over 10,000 children and families they serve each year in South Carolina.
Each year in South Carolina CACs provide services to over 10,000 abused kids. Most of these children receive forensic interviews which is a critical first step in reducing the child’s trauma and providing healing. The forensic interview also provides evidence for judicial proceedings and helps to prevent others from falling victim to the same perpetrator. All CACs need a video management system and VidaNyx is the leading cloud-based digital video evidence management solution for these interview recordings.
The VidaNyx pilot project launched in late November of 2019 in South Carolina when a few CACs began using the system. The VidaNyx Impact report, to the right, shows the impact of implementing VidaNyx in CACs in South Carolina recently, including cost savings by MDTs. This is data that, without VidaNyx, is not captured by MDTs, and it helps support reporting, updating MOUs and identifying trends in MDTs. SCNCAC manages and provides this statewide system for all CACs and MDT partners in South Carolina.
