IACP Conference, 2012: Kim Webley and Shannon Turner, FileOnQ
Kim Webley, founder of FileOnQ, says the company serves law enforcement by focusing on property and evidence management from the crime scene to the courtroom. He indicates that the company was founded 15 years ago to fill records management needs, to insure a defensible chain of custody and to protect chiefs, sheriffs and other law enforcement officials from losing their jobs because of mishandling of evidence. Shannon Turner, an evidence expert with a long background in managing property rooms, crime scene investigation and other evidence-related assignments, describes how the company’s software uses a barcode system to reduce not only paper, but also liability. The software technology is so flexible, she says, that agencies often use it to manage other inventories, such as fleets, personnel and guns.
