Evidence Custodian: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Years ago I remember hearing about the great deals at a local police auction. When will you be holding your next police auction? A: At this time the department does not hold local auctions. All property going to auction is presently being processed online through www.propertyroom.com. They are the leading internet auction services company serving law enforcement in the United States.

Q: My court case was just disposed of.  Can get my property back if I come to the police department on the same day? A: No. Unfortunately, it may take several days for the court to process the paperwork and send it to the police department. As always, it is best to call the evidence custodian prior to coming to the police department to confirm that the paperwork has arrived.

Q: How long will the police department hold "found" property?  When can I claim an item I found and turned in? A: The police department will hold "found" items of value for a period of six months. Yes, you may claim the item you "found" after the six month period has elapsed.

Q: I was recently arrested for driving under the influence (D.U.I.) and the police seized my CT operators license. When can I come to the police department to pick up my license? A: You should not come to the police department. Your license will be mailed back to you at the address you provided. Check your mail box within one or two days.
