Help improve accuracy and tracking through serialized and barcoded evidence bag labels on demand.
Durable laminated labels on demand
Distributing preprinted, sequentially ordered evidence labels, and having officers and investigators handwrite documentation on those labels remains a common practice in many departments. However, handwriting evidence labels can lead to errors and ultimately jeopardize the validity of critical evidence. Keeping track of who has which series of labels in the field remains an administrative headache as well.
One solution is to enter data into a laptop on-scene and produce more accurate evidence labels on demand with much greater detail and clarity than handwriting permits, with clear identification of the person who tagged the evidence, and with barcodes that can be scanned to maintain the integrity of the chain-of-custody throughout the investigative and prosecution process. A variety of software packages now exist to record the data, create the printable evidence labels, and to scan the barcodes at any time, and Brother™ offers on-demand desktop label printing solutions to print wide paper labels with high-resolution text, graphics and barcodes, as well as mobile small-format printers for labels up to 4" wide.
Brother™ also provides solutions for printing durable, laminated tamper-evident labels – that leave a tell-tale permanent mark when removed or repositioned – which can be used to mark evidence bags.
Help improve the accuracy and integrity of documenting the chain of custody.
Generate large paper and film labels with printed – not handwritten – details and barcodes; help speed and simplify accurate tracking of evidence bags throughout the chain of custody.
Mark evidence, assets and equipment – indoors and outdoors – with durable laminated labels.
Print durable laminated labels on demand that withstand harsh environments – perfect for marking and tracking department assets, equipment and for providing warning or instruction labels that last and remain clearly readable for years. The same devices also print tamper-evident labels that leave a permanent tell-tale pattern if removed or repositioned.
No inks. No toners. Better reliability.
Brother™ evidence tagging and durable labeling solutions use thermal printing technology that requires no inks or toners. Paper evidence labels are produced with direct thermal printing – so the only consumable is media on convenient drop-in rolls. Laminated labels are produced with thermal transfer technology, where text and graphics are created under a clear protective laminate layer; the only consumables are preloaded interchangeable tape cassettes that allow you to change tape colors, sizes and adhesive types in seconds.
