The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) will be hosting the Evidence Management Conference on October 2-4, 2019, at the NIST Gaithersburg campus.
The issue of evidence management has become a national concern for several reasons, including the movement to resolve sexual assault kit backlogs, headlines describing problems in evidence rooms and scientific advances that have led to an increase in the amount of evidence being submitted and stored. The infrastructure and technology necessary to manage the growing amount of collected evidence has not improved and the lack of interoperability between stakeholders remains a challenge.
The three-day Evidence Management Conference will foster awareness of this issue by discussing the state of the industry and by sharing successes, lessons learned and best practices. The event will provide an opportunity for a candid discussion between law enforcement executives, criminal justice practitioners, policy makers, and the legal community from around the nation on the important issues of evidence management.
Posters & Exhibitors
Poster and exhibitor sessions will take place during the conference on October 2ndand 3rd from 11:30am – 2:00pm in the NIST Poster Hallway.
