About Us



CAPE was formed in order to promote professionalism in property and evidence gathering, processing, and retention. Emphasis is placed on information sharing, training and support.



CAPE is a non-profit organization made up of both civilian and sworn personnel. Membership is open to all those involved in the processing or retention of property and evidence for criminal justice agencies.


CAPE members have access to the members-only section of the website:

  • Discussion boards
  • Sample forms and manuals
  • Online resource library
  • Job openings
  • Job descriptions
  • News and current events
  • Membership directory
  • And more!

CAPE has nine chapters in California as well as individual members from other states and countries. Each CAPE chapter is responsible for organizing the training within their region. Associate members not currently employed by an law enforcement agency may participate in CAPE events but do not have access to the members-only section of the website. CAPE holds an annual state-wide training seminar that provides additional training and networking opportunities.
