IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation

IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation© is available for all law enforcement agencies who have responsibility for property and evidence received and maintained in the normal scope of their operation.

What is the IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation Program©, and why should I consider it for our agency?

The IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation Program© is a review of a law enforcement agency’s property and evidence systems by recognized experts in the field of property room management. The professional assessment of the agency’s property room’s standards, documentation, procedures and actions as they relate to recognized IAPE Standards© and the industry’s best practices provides the agency with a quality report of their property room management.

Is it difficult to achieve IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation©?

Meeting the standards required for IAPE Property and Evidence Room
Accreditation© requires the following:

1. At least one person from your agency attends and successfully completes
one of the IAPE Property and Evidence Room Management Training© classes in person or on-line within the last three years

2. Your agency applies the IAPE Standards© and best practices of property
room management as taught in the IAPE training

3. Your agency successfully completes the IAPE Property and Evidence Room
Accreditation Program©, and your agency is certified by IAPE as meeting the IAPE Standards© for property room management

Upon achieving accreditation, your agency is required to maintain the accreditation standards and provide annual documentation of your compliance with the IAPE Standards© to continue your 3-year IAPE Accreditation Certification©. You will be given a document to complete each year for this purpose.

What does our agency have to do to become accredited through IAPE?

Application© and information explaining the program.

Your agency needs to complete the IAPE Accreditation Pre-Assessment© and return it to your assigned IAPE Accreditation Team Leader© for his/her initial review. If it appears your agency is ready for review, your on-site visit will be arranged. The IAPE Accreditation Team Leader will complete his/her IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation Report© with his/her observations.

2. Upon reviewing the IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation Report© with the IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation Subcommittee©, a determination will be made for awarding IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation©. The decision on your agency’s IAPE Property and Evidence Room Accreditation© will be sent to your Agency Accreditation Manager©.
