The property and evidence section is charged with managing all property brought into the Police Department as evidence, found property, or property for safekeeping. The Property Clerk insures all property entries are recorded and disposed of in a legally prescribed manner. All items of evidence needed to be examined at the Sheriff's Crime Lab are prepared for transport by the Property Clerk, as well as preparing all non-contraband unclaimed property for the annual city auction.
If you need to have property returned that was secured as found property or for safekeeping please call the Property Clerk at 323-563-5490 to make an appointment. Any item that was taken in as evidence must be cleared through the handling detective.
