The NIJ CJTEC’s Landscape Study of Software-Based Evidence Management Systems identifies how software-based evidence management systems may enable law enforcement agencies to efficiently locate, manage, and dispose of physical evidence. It offers a “landscape” of currently available and emerging software products for physical evidence management. In addition, the report provides key benefits, limitations, and adoption considerations for these products; these details have been gathered from interviews with end users and property room evidence management experts. The information provided will help law enforcement agencies consider, select, and implement these software products.
