NIST Evidence Management Conference

October 2 - October 4

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, on the NIST Gaithersburg campus.

Background

Several factors have led to national attention on evidence management including the movement to resolve sex assault kit backlogs, headlines describing problems in evidence rooms, and scientific advancements in forensic science resulting in increased volumes 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.

Purpose

The three-day Evidence Management Conference will focus on fostering awareness by sharing the state of the industry, successes, lessons learned, and recommending 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.
