Examiners F.R.I.E.N.D. Jr. Field Kit

FRIEND Field Kit
By tapping into years of field experience from both a law enforcement and commercial side C.I.T.S. has developed a best of breed integrated field acquisition system that would cater for almost all digital seizure and investigative work and that’s equally capable in the lab.  In an industry known for its acronyms the system was branded as the Examiners F.R.I.E.N.D. (Forensic Response Incident Evidence Notation Device).  The F.R.I.E.N.D. Jr are currently in their 4th revision and has been extensively field tested.

The aim was to provide the investigator with the highest performance system possible (possessing, storage and data transfer) whilst keeping the solution optimally portable. The C.I.T.S. F.R.I.E.N.D. systems are almost exclusively used by the forensic units of both the SA Police Service (SAPS) and SA Revenue Service (SARS) and is fast becoming an industry standard.
The F.R.I.E.N.D. kit is a preconfigured turnkey digital forensic solution with the investigator as the only missing element.
