To Our Interested Law Enforcement Agencies
The PDEvidence barcode police evidence management system began with a project to build an evidence management system for my police department. We were using a 3-ring binder with paper records and knew we needed improvement to meet accreditation standards. As a detective and a computer forensics examiner, I knew we could do better by leveraging web and barcode technology. My background, prior to entering law enforcement, is in Information Technology. When other agencies wanted to duplicate what we had, I realized this project could grow into the ideal solution for law enforcement agencies everywhere.
The PDEvidence solution for police and other law enforcement agencies is web based and automates chain of custody through the use of bar coding. Getting started with PDEvidence is easy. Tell us who you are, about your manpower, and the names of your evidence and property locations. These locations include temporary evidence lockers, impound areas, main evidence room shelves, separate storage areas for drugs, guns and money, commonly used laboratories, and any other areas to which you might assign evidence and property. Once we have that information we setup a link for https://your agency.PDEvidence.com. Your members then use this link to login to your agency’s new evidence management system from wherever the need arises across the Internet.
Enter police evidence and property at the station, on the road or at the scene of a search warrant. Instantly generate barcode labels, print them and attach them to your packaged items. We help you along the way with streamlined data entry and error checking. Additionally we can integrate your departmental policy into the help menus to reinforce agency standards of evidence handling. This is evidence management built by real cops, not software developers. We handle the hosting, but your data is yours. In fact you can download it for yourself anytime you want. PDEvidence is a subscription package so you pay per member per month, or we offer a 15% discount if you pay a year in advance. Our current pricing is available here.
PDEvidence is constantly under development; we’re adding new features all the time. Most of these features come from user feedback. “It would be great if PDEvidence would…”, and then we add it. Our feature updates come at no additional expense to our users. Your evidence management system never becomes outdated and is continually refreshed!
