Delaware, USA – SUMURI, a leader in the digital forensics software and hardware industry has launched its year-end SUMURI Gives Back campaign. On December 23, 2019 the tech firm posted a video announcement with SUMURI Chief Product Officer and Co-founder Steve Whalen, President and Co-founder Ailyn Whalen and CEO Jason Roslewicz announcing the winner of the SUMURI Gives Back year-end campaign for 2019, giving away a bright yellow colored TALINO forensic workstation nicknamed Bumblebee and valued at $10,000 USD. Due to the overwhelming amount of votes cast for the runner up, SUMURI has decided to also award a forensic workstation to the Kenyan Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

SUMURI Gives Back is a continuation of the company’s long-standing tradition of supporting the Law Enforcement community through humanitarian missions and donations of software and computers.

“I had the opportunity to teach Kenyan law enforcement through the US Department of State in 2007.  I saw firsthand the dedication of Kenyan law enforcement officers doing as much as they could with very limited resources.  I never forgot Kenyan spirit and it showed with the number of votes and comments from Kenyan citizens backing DCI. It was the support of Kenya’s citizens for DCI that compelled us and moved us to do more by also providing them with a TALINO workstation.  We hope that they use it to help protect the Kenyan citizens that supported them” said Steve Whalen, SUMURI’s Chief Product Officer and Co-founder.

“This Agency is based at [sic] Directorate of Criminal investigations in Kenya,i [sic] the only unit used to produce criminal reports used for criminal justice. It has 35 officers with only one tower used for phone, computer and network forensics. This has lead its [sic] ineffectiveness and delay of justice in court of law. It’s forensic tools are outdated due to its small budget which has led to [sic] backlog of work at the station dating back to 2017. Its my humble request that the work station be donated [sic] this unit.”
