Course Objectives

The five-day PATC Evidence Managers Certification Course will cover all aspects of the Property/Evidence Room functions to include;

  Property Room Problems and Solutions

  Policies and Procedures



  Management Theories

  DNA Storage forToday

  Property Room Layout

  Storage Management




  Audits andInventories

  Miscellaneous Handouts and Sample Forms

This course is in addition the two-day evidence management course that PATC offers. This course will provide an in-depth study of property and evidence from the moment of collection at a scene until final disposition.  We will be reviewing United States Supreme Court rulings, and how they apply to the property room.  This course will highlight many of the concerns and issues that face property room managers today.  Our intention is to give property managers the necessary tools to succeed.  All of the course material is based on Acceptable National Standards.  Administrators are encouraged to attend this training as well, in order to have a better understanding of the issues that plague department evidence personnel and how to prevent your agency from becoming a national news item.

Upon completion of the course, evidence personnel will gain the knowledge necessary to set the foundation for success in the property room.  As with all successes, there must be middle and senior management acknowledgement and support to implement the changes that need to be made.


your class was extremely informational, and as a result, it created severalquestions which I brought back to my Sgt that pertain to our department. JT. Boulder, CO 

I have been in Law Enforcement for over twenty years.  I have never had an instructor that could keep the class attention as you did.  This class was great!! TG. BIA
