The Property and Evidence Unit receives, stores, releases, or disposes of all items of property received by police personnel during the normal course of business. This includes items collected as evidence, found property, and property stored for safekeeping. When the owners of items are known or identifiable, the Property Officers attempt to return items as soon as possible. Those salvageable items that are not reunited with their owners are released and disposed through an internet auction service. Crime victims can also register identifiable lost or stolen items on the web site for possible match and return before auction.
Auctions are held on a continual basis through http://www.propertybureau.com. Visit their website to see how you can bid on police property as well as register your own lost or stolen items!
