Items of found property are held for 60 days. Attempts are made to identify the legal owner and return the item to the owner within those 60 days. If items are unclaimed or no owner is identified, the property is disposed of or sold at auction with the funds going into the City's General Fund.
Property releases are made ONLY with an appointment as very few people have access to the property room. Appointments are available during daytime hours, Monday-Friday excluding holidays and other days when property staff are unavailable. When calling to make an appointment or when calling with questions about your property being held as evidence, you will need to provide the police department's case number.
To schedule an appointment, call 701.241.1422.
