Thirty-five newly designated Evidence/Property Custodians (EPCs) from across the state recently received their final training on a new evidence/property tracking computer system specially designed for the Florida Highway Patrol by Danny Tuten and Jackie Baird of Version2Network. The new state of the art bar code tracking system puts FHP out front as a leader. FHP is the first agency to use this advanced technology that is designed to control and manage one of the largest inventories of evidence/property for a major state law enforcement agency in the United States. This new system, which went into full production November 1, will enable troopers to process and submit all evidence/property receipts from their patrol cars using their MDTs (mobile data terminals).
FHP members work on a variety of exercises
to test their proficiency with the new software.
In addition to the additional training, the EPCs were briefed on the newly revised FHP policies that govern the agency's entire E/P management system. The new policies are much more progressive and comprehensive, providing for greater accountability and integrity within the E/P control function at all levels. FHP is very proud of its new computerized tracking system and updated policy revisions which will ensure that the agency continues to serve as the lead law enforcement agency for our state.
A contest was held to determine the troop at the top of the learning curve, as judged by the instructors for the training. The winner was Troop F, led by Lieutenants Vincent Crawford, James Potter, and John Donovan
