Certified Evidence Specialist
Why should a Property and Evidence Custodian become certified?
There are benefits to the individual, the agency that employs them, and the Criminal Justice System. First, by achieving CPES designation, IAPE attests to your training, your familiarization with the IAPE Professional Standards, and that you have demonstrated your knowledge of the standards and best practices by having successfully completed a written examination. You will join more than 2,000 professionals worldwide who have achieved the designation. Just as with any other professional certification, this is a significant C.V./resume item for the individual. In some agencies, the award of CPES status is the basis for a salary increase. Now let us address your agency.
