Property & Evidence

The Property Room Coordinator receives all property, excluding vehicles, taken as evidence, for safekeeping, or as found property. Evidence refers to property that is related to the commission of a crime; found property is non-evidentiary property that is lost or abandoned and is not suspected of connection with any criminal offense; "safekeeping" refers to non-evidentiary property maintained in department custody on behalf of the owner.

The Property Room Coordinator is responsible for properly accounting for, logging, and maintaining all property received on a case until there is a final court adjudication. Further, the property room coordinator is responsible for transferring evidence to forensic labs for testing and releasing property once proper documentation is submitted.
