RFID Tracking System For Keeping Forensic Evidence Under Control

Bode Technology : 01 October, 2010  (New Product)
Bode-RFID is now available for police and other law enforcement bodies for improving forensic workflow and keeping track of evidence
Bode Technology has begun offering its new state-of-the-art Bode-RFID tracking system to law enforcement agencies and crime laboratories nationwide in an effort to streamline work flows and help control costs in the ever-growing field of evidence tracking and analysis. The new system will enable field investigators and laboratory analysts to cut costs and effectively automate and manage a process which has been traditionally slow.

The Bode-RFID System was initially developed in 2009 and has since been implemented to track numerous cases at the company's Virginia headquarters. The Bode-RFID System has proven to be a time and cost saver while streamlining the management and tracking of evidence. The completion of the internal test showed that the technology is now ready and can show substantial results quickly after implementation. The system will revolutionize the time and cost of tracking case folders and forensic evidence as well as providing a better, more accurate record of where each item is currently located, where it has been, and who has been handling it throughout the forensics process.

"The ability to quickly and efficiently track evidence and electronically manage the chain-of-custody process by the use of Bode-RFID will be invaluable to law enforcement officials at every level, and will change the way evidence is managed in the field," said Barry Watson, Bode CEO and President. "Whether it is a case file or physical evidence such as a weapon, the Bode-RFID system will create and maintain an electronic record of a sample's movement from a crime scene through testing and storage, with data that could be used in venues ranging from the crime scene to the a courtroom." The system is flexible and can act as a module to a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) which stores and manages data regarding evidence for municipal, state and federal agencies. It will save time and money and most importantly, aid in providing accurate information on the location of evidence and managing the chain-of-custody process to ensure evidence collected at crime scenes can be used efficiently for cases to reach an effective and conclusive end much faster than ever before.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has been in place in a wide variety of industries since the 1960s, and makes it possible to automate manual tasks such as creating an evidence manifest and accessioning items into evidence storage. Creating an electronic manifest at the crime scene that can be used during the accessioning process when receiving RFID tagged evidence at the property room can saves hours of time and provide more accurate information that does not need to be transcribed when starting a new process.
