Public Safety Department Seized Evidence & Property Audits

Public Safety Department Seized Evidence & Property Audits
 

Securing and maintaining seized evidence and property is a critical role of any public safety agency. Proper controls and procedures must be established to ensure the integrity of seized evidence and property. Internal controls can also help protect seized evidence and property from loss, theft or misuse.

Marcum's Advisory Group has the expertise and technical knowledge necessary to provide seized evidence and property audits to police departments across the nation. Our team includes former law enforcement executives, compliance and internal audit professionals as well as other subject matter experts as necessary, bringing a thorough understanding of public safety needs.

Our Comprehensive Approach

At the onset of our engagement, we work closely with department management to develop a comprehensive plan for reviewing and auditing seized evidence and property. This includes

  • Understanding the complete evidentiary process and required forms.
  • Determining what computerized records are available.
  • Determining and requesting required reports for analysis.
  • Conducting an independent review of the police department's policies, procedures and best practices.
 

Working in collaboration with public safety management, Marcum will complete a review and analysis of the evidentiary protocols and process. Following our review, we will draft a final report containing findings and recommendations. Marcum has made public presentations or provided a summary of this report to be used for public dissemination.

Marcum's Advisory Group provides a comprehensive approach to providing seized evidence and property audits to police departments. Our investigative skills and in-depth knowledge allows Marcum to help provide your organization with value added forensic services as a well-qualified and reputable industry leader.

Potential benefits that can be realized by engaging Marcum's Advisory Group include:

  • Improving fiscal oversight;
  • Identifying opportunities for reducing costs;
