If a citizen's property finds its way into police custody without their knowledge, the Property Room will make a good faith effort to identify and notify the owner in writing. In some cases where an owner advises that they cannot retrieve their property within thirty days, the Property Room may extend the duration of safekeeping.

Picking Up My Property

  • You need to contact the Property Room to set-up a date and time to pick up your property.
  • Some items of property will require special handling instructions
  • Picture identification is required in all circumstances.
  • Proof of ownership and/or loss may be required. (Proof would include a police report documenting the theft or loss of the item, a receipt showing the description of the item at the time of purchase, anything with a description and serial number with the owner's name, etc.)
