After many years of designing and presenting training and educational programs for leadership development, property room management, and employment related matters, we decided it was time to share our knowledge, experience and expertise with other companies and governmental entities.

John Vasquez has been involved with property & evidence management for over 25 years in the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Ft. Worth, Texas Police Department, and most recently with the Wichita Falls, Texas Police Department. From 1998 thru 2004, he served on the Board of Directors for the Texas Association of Property & Evidence Inventory Technicians (TAPEIT), and from 2004 thru 2008, he served as President.

In September 2008, he was privileged to speak at the Texas Criminal Justice Integrity Unit in Austin, chaired by Court of Crimial Appeals Justice Barbara Hervey . Among this Unit’s many goals is the overhaul of the collection, preservation and storage of evidence. His presentation was focused on awareness of issues in evidence rooms and many of John’s suggestions are being proposed during the 2009 Texas Legislative session.

John has authored articles relating to property and evidence management – most recently in the March/April edition of Evidence Technology Magazine. His knowledge and expertise has also landed him speaking engagements at conferences and workshops.

John has over 25 years experience in all levels of management and has designed several training programs over the years. He has demonstrated his leadership abilities in two non-profit associations as president. John’s leadership abilities catapulted the membership from 335 to over 1,100 in four years and doubled the attendance at the annual conferences to over 240 attendees. John’s biggest accomplishment during his tenure as TAPEIT President was overseeing and guiding the design of the Basic Property Technician Certification, first offered at the 2007 Annual Conference. This is the first state-specific certification of its kind nationwide.

His leadership philosophy is focused on reconnecting management with employees. For many years, companies have been closed minded to listening to frontline employees relating to efficiency, procedural effectiveness and overall operations. Who best to solicit input from than the very same people that “make it happen”. The current economic downturn brings new issues to the forefront of many companies – one being retaining qualified employees. Making employees a part of the company begins the retention process. John’s courses provide much needed insight to this area, as well as dealing with problem employees and workplace negativity.
