Evidence & Records: Understanding Retention & Destruction Requirements

What Will Be Covered
With a focus on the proper management of the records related to evidence and property, learn what the law requires. How long should evidence be kept? What about the records associated with the case? When the court sends a letter saying the evidence can be destroyed, should it be? This class will address the confusion between what evidence is public record and what public records are considered evidence.

Challenges to Prepare For
+ When does evidence become a public record?
+ Is there a difference between the two?
+ When the court authorizes evidence to be disposed, is it ok to destroy it?
+ Are there additional retention requirements beyond the closure of a case?
+ What about evidence that has met the statute of limitation?

Who should attend: Personnel who manage and oversee the proper management of evidence and case records
