CORAL GABLES, Fla. August 07, 2019 — PRI Management Group, a highly specialized management consulting firm that supports criminal justice agencies records management, technology, policy and project management needs, today announced its partnership with Veritone Inc., the creator of the world’s first AI operating system, aiWARE, and provider of AI-powered Government Solutions including advanced video and audio redaction as well as facial recognition applications.

Now available in partnership with PRI Management Group, Veritone Redact(R) and Veritone IDentify(R) improve workflow efficiencies, drive cost savings for agencies, and accelerate suspect leads investigations.

Veritone Redact is a user-friendly software application built for police, correctional and prosecutorial agencies automating the redaction of both video and audio evidence for public records compliance. Coupled with PRI’s expertise and best-in-class implementation services, including defensible policy, systems integration, training and support, agencies can realize benefits quickly.


Ed Claughton, CEO of PRI and a former police lieutenant specializing in criminal justice records management operations and technology said, “Veritone Redact actually works the way redaction systems should work – not missing a beat and without creating headaches for users. The best of any system I’ve seen, Veritone has built the ultimate answer to easily redact video and audio assets. By leveraging facial recognition and transcription, the application identifies what needs to be blurred or muted automatically”.

Veritone IDentify, coupled with the subject matter expertise of PRI, will enable the defensible implementation of facial recognition software by law enforcement.

The turnkey application allows police to quickly compare unknown suspects captured on video to existing photo and video records in known offender databases leading to an immediate recognition of possible suspects. Investigators can then proceed to investigate further, turning otherwise often useless video into actionable suspect leads.


“When I was a detective, this technology wasn’t available. Looking back, I would have been able to catch a whole lot of bad guys using this system”, says Ed Claughton. “Our services will allow agencies to address and overcome any resistance or misperceptions that come with AI. We tailor standard operating procedures (SOP) for each customer, provide the training and support, and inform officials and stakeholders with deep subject matter expertise in public records, technology standards and police operations”.
