The maintenance, management, and safekeeping of property and evidence taken in by the Palestine Police Department also fall within the Criminal Investigations Division.
The primary responsibility of a Property Evidence Specialist is to receive all incoming property, properly and securely store it so that it remains readily accessible, lawfully release or destroy it, and maintain documentation of the entire process.
Call the Property and Evidence Specialist to schedule an appointment.
Appointment hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Be prepared to present photo identification at your appointment.
If you are unable to retrieve your property and need someone else to pick it up, please prepare a signed and notarized statement giving your approval for your representative to claim your items.
Appointments are scheduled so that a property specialist can be made available to handle your case on a one-on-one basis without interruption. The property specialist may be in court, transporting evidence to the crime laboratory, or viewing evidence with an attorney.
