• Evidence and Found Property


    The Sheriff's Office works to maintain property in the same condition in which it was received, and to preserve the evidentiary value and integrity of property for possible court presentation.

    Unless property is contraband, hazardous, illegal to possess or is presented into court, every reasonable effort will be made to ensure its return to the rightful owner as soon as possible.

    Release of evidence must first be authorized by the officer assigned to the case. If you have received a letter from the Evidence Vault indicating that you may retrieve your property, the officer has already approved the evidence release.
