Managing the Property & Evidence Room

Length of Seminar: 2 Days
Instructor: Joseph Willis

Course Overview:

The property and evidence room plays a critical role in both the effective investigation of criminal cases and the subsequent prosecution of offenders. Deficiencies in operations or documentation can lead to inadmissibility and the potential for a lost or dismissed case.

This course for small to mid-size agencies provides a basic understanding of the legal and ethical requirements for a professional evidence/property management system. Participants will become familiar with techniques and responsibilities involved in the function of a property room environment, and encouraged to exchange ideas to improve their agency’s property management system. The course complies with CALEA standards.

Upon Completion:
Participants will be able to:

• Identify common property room problems and solutions
• Develop policies and procedures
• Ensure proper packaging and security of evidence and property
• Discuss management theories, events, and trends related to property room management
• Describe ideal room layouts and management approaches
• Properly document evidence and property
• Purge systems of unneeded items and dispose of them
• Conduct audits and inventories of property rooms
