Texas Association of Property and Evidence Inventory Technicians had their conference this week in San Antonio, TX. TAPEIT was created by Kolean Dean in 1997 to create standards and training for those who managed evidence in criminal cases and property rooms. Since then this conference and its membership have grown. The conference covers the latest legislative changes and overs certifications for personnel in the best practices of property room management.
This year it was great to see everyone as it was one of the only conferences to meet in person due to Covid concerns. It was great to network and meet everyone and get a chance to learn the latest in property and evidence management. One of the great reasons to come to a conference is to see the latest technology offered by the vendors. I was able to sit down with each vendor and have them tell me about their product on this week’s episode of Crime Scene Today.
At the end of the episode, I talk with co-host Cele Rossi about the upcoming International Association of Bloodstain Pattern Analysts and Association of Crime Scene Reconstruction Conferences coming up.
