MAPET was originally formed in 1997, but dissolved in 2001 due to changes in staff and retirements.

An ad hoc group of evidence technicians, property room officers, evidence custodians and others started meeting again in 2019 to share ideas, concerns, problems, discuss statutes, share policies and other information.

The Minnesota Association of Property and Evidence Technicians group has acted as a sounding board for one another in this most crucial aspect of law enforcement. We invite you to join us!

Managing and tracking property and evidence plays a pivotal role within Law Enforcement Agencies and Attorney Offices.

Evidence can be crucial to investigations and it doesn't just end with the collection and storage. The members of MAPET have been working with agencies across the state to find ways to efficiently manage Property and Evidence rooms intake, storage, and dispositions.
