Steve Paxton – Everette Police Department, WA

Did you know… less than 5% of evidence makes it to court! 🤨

That’s a fairly important statistic if your job involves managing property and evidence.

Much of the “stuff” in property rooms can be purged. The International Association for Property and Evidence (IAPE) affectionately refers to this stuff as Krapola. 🤣

Here’s how the IAPE defines it:

👉 KRAPOLA – Stuff you don’t want but have to keep because everyone else thinks you have to keep it.

👉 STUFF – Krapola that has been sitting around with no evidentiary value.

Want to get rid of the Krapola? Of course you do!

📢 EvidenceOnQ is designed around fast, efficient evidence management and includes easy-to-use audit and inventory features to help police departments know what Krapola they can get rid of. 💯
