Bureau Overview

The Evidence-Property Studies and Special Assignments Bureau, (EPSSA), assists law enforcement by conducting studies of agencies’ evidence and property functions and storage facilities, and advising agency heads of the best practices for safely and securely storing and tracking evidence and property items. The agencies can then incorporate the best practices into codified policies and procedures to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their respective evidence and property functions. EPSSA also assists with securing mandatory and ancillary training for POST personnel, and conducts special projects as needed.
