Have Barcodes - That Work
An efficient barcode system is essential for your agency to implement best practices in evidence management. Having barcodes for dispositions such as Destroyed, Returned to Owner, Auctioned, etc. are key to streamlining purge projects. Many agencies use systems that generate barcodes, yet the scanners don’t work or the systems still require manual transactions.
Capture Personal Information
When releasing property and evidence, it is essential to obtain the signature of the person receiving it. An efficient evidence system enables signatures to be captured electronically and will automatically store them in the chain of custody. Many agencies also maintain a copy of the owner’s identification as well.
