Evidence tracking system
Pitney Bowes launches Arrival Law Enforcement, a data-collection track-and-trace solution designed to help police departments better manage their evidence and property. Law enforcement officials accountable for evidence management may use the system to securely track and trace handguns, forensic evidence, drugs, items, and cash as these items are archived and transported between various departments during a criminal investigation or as part of the chain-of-custody procedures inside a law enforcement facility. The system is designed to allow officers to tag, barcode, and photograph all items and store the data and images in a database for automated search and quick retrieval. The system includes a camera and signature pad designed to capture the person's signature and record an image of the person requesting the item to sign out or record disposition.
