LEID Products is participating in the Illinois Association of Property and Evidence Managers Training Conference. The Illinois Association of Property and Evidence Managers (IAPEM) seeks to promote education and professionalism among evidence management professionals in the State of Illinois. The event is taking place at the Wyndham Lisle-Chicago Hotel from April 17-19, 2013. LEID Products will be on hand to educate attendees on the BACS Evidence Management System – comprised of Electronic Evidence Lockers and BACS Evidence Management ID Station Kiosk – that provides secure storage, access and tracking which provides unparalleled chain of custody for evidence moving in and out of property rooms.

The IAPEM, established in 2005, welcomes any member who is involved in the collection, processing and retention of property and evidence for criminal justice agencies. The conference will have an emphasis on information sharing amongst law enforcement and evidence professionals, safety in dealing with hazardous materials, fingerprint development, DNA evidence issues and more.

“Consistency and chain of custody are two paramount concerns for law enforcement departments and criminal justice agencies,” said Sam Hoff, president of LEID Products. “The BACS Evidence Management System was designed to meet standards required by CALEA® (the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement). It assures proper evidence control and tracking by electronically tracking possession of evidence, limiting liability and consequences of exposure to human error.”
