Accreditation for the Management and Operation of Property and Evidence Control Units

What is Property and Evidence Control Unit accreditation?

Confidence in an organization’s ability to maintain the integrity of property and evidence items is crucial to the successful administration of justice and to maintain public trust. This program provides your organization with a roadmap for reducing risk and ensuring greater accountability, and a benchmark to measure competency.

Whether property and evidence items are entrusted for short-term or long-term care, whether they are destined for the forensic laboratory, the courtroom, return to the owner, permanent retention or eventual destruction, ANAB accreditation will ensure that appropriate processes are in place, that personnel are competent to effectively implement those processes and that appropriate actions are taken when nonconforming work is identified.
