Evidence & Records: retention and destruction (state specific)195

Understanding retention and destruction requirements.

Seminar Overview

Who should attend: records and/or evidence personnel responsible for managing public records held in the property and evidence section. Learn what the law requires regarding maintenance, retention and disposition of public records held as evidence. How long should digital evidence be kept? What about other records associated with the case? When a court disposition has been received authorizing the disposition of evidence, is it okay to destroy digital evidence as well? Are there additional retention requirements? This course focuses on the proper management of digital evidence (public record) in a criminal case.

This class will address the confusion between what evidence is public record and what public records are considered evidence as well as:
  • When does evidence become a public record?
  • Is there a difference between the two?
  • When the court authorizes evidence to be disposed, is it okay to destroy it?
  • Are there additional retention requirements beyond the closure of a case?
  • What about evidence that has met the statute of limitation?
