McNeill was one of the trainees and said: "When I went to Austin Police Department for training, all the staff were professional, friendly and easy to cooperate with. They had some initial biases on the function of OSCR, but as the training progressed, They are glad to learn that OSCR software is so versatile. The SI department regularly provides evidence and case investigation results to superior staff and the District Attorney's Office. So far, they have relied on PowerPoint. With OSCR, all different types of multimedia files It can be done quickly and easily, which can save our work a lot of time and energy. "
