The Property and Evidence Management course is intended to provide the student an understanding of today’s property and evidence world with the view from the supervisor. Within the three days of this course of instruction, several topics will be covered from training and FTO programs to management quality control.
This class will stress and instruct high responsibility issues that are found in the field of property and evidence to include: • Safety and Security • Training and FTO programs • Scheduling hours and job descriptions • Audits/Inspections and Spot checks
These topics can be very difficult to achieve and are normally checked by accreditation services but are normally neglected within property and evidence training. An open time will be given during the class so that attendees can compare procedures and policies as they refer to best practices.
A special block of instruction will also be given in liability subjects to include:
• Weapons • Narcotics • Money and high dollar items
Destruction and purge of all items to include high liability items
Finally, newer technologies will be covered and discussed in depth so that the student can understand the relationship of these technologies and their place within the property and evidence unit. Technologies discussed include handheld scanners and scan guns, bar code labeling and storage software, and understanding how the receipt and disposition of evidence is critical to a supervisor in charge. This course is also excellent for the Property & Evidence Specialist to prepare for assuming leadership roles within the P&E unit.
