Michigan’s first shared public safety facility confirms success in keeping critical chain of custody electronically accounted for with the patented Biometric Access Control System (BACS™) Evidence Management System pioneered by Auburn Hills, MI based LEID Products.
Auburn Hills, MI – September 15, 2016 – LEID Products, LLC., the leader of electronic locker and cabinet storage with biometric asset protection and control, today announced its BACS™ Evidence Management System has proven successful at the Marshall Regional Law Enforcement Center in Marshall, MI. Three separate law enforcement agencies share one electronic evidence locker system at the cooperative facility. The BACS™ Evidence Management System is used to access and track all evidence moving into and out of the property room.
Detectives and patrol officers from the City of Marshall Police Department, the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department, and the local Michigan State Police post all share the same evidence area. “The BACS Evidence System is easy to use, provides high security, and simplifies managing large volumes of evidence,” said Post Commander Lt. James R. Coleman, Michigan State Police, Marshall Regional Post #54.
Evidence control must be strictly adhered to; documented chain of custody is critical for successful prosecution of criminal cases in court. The patented BACS™ system allows each agency to maintain detailed electronic documentation tracked back to a biometric fingerprint for authentication.
