The Property and Evidence Section is a component of the Criminal Investigations Division. The Property and Evidence Section is responsible for cataloging, tracking and storing all property and evidence, providing evidence records to the courts prior to prosecution, assist with major crime scene processing, evidence collection and case dispositions.
No property is returned without written notice from the courts or the assigned detective handling the case.
Do I need an appointment to retrieve my property?
Yes, it is best to make an appointment at least 24 hours prior to coming to police headquarters to pick up property. An appointment will ensure the property custodian is available and able to expedite the transaction in a timely manner.
All property is assigned a case number related to an offense. If you do not know your case/offense number, it is important that you provide the name that the case/offense is listed under.
I don't believe that my property should have been taken; what recourse do I have?
The Evidence Custodian is not responsible for the collection of property. If you have a dispute about property being held, clarify the situation with the assigned detective or officer involved. You should contact that officer and request they provide the Evidence Custodian with a written document indicating that the property may be released.
