FBI Goes Paperless, Rolls Out Sentinel Digital Case Management System

The Federal Bureau of Investigations has officially gone paperless, rolling out the Sentinel digital case management system last month. The software's 20,000 daily users can now perform searches to identify similarities between cases, electronically sign documents, and enter or review data from current suspects and cases, according to Mashable.

Sentinel is a cutting-edge yet costly way to bring the bureau into the 21st century. The upgrade cost over $600 million since its 2005 inception; budget woes are the most-cited reason for Sentinel's slow adoption. The new system should help agents carry out investigations more efficiently.

Watch Mashable's video analysis of the technology below. Do you think the transition to digital opens the FBI up to more security issues than with paper?
