Claiming and Releasing Property
Property must be claimed by the owner with government-issued photo identification. Property may be claimed by a third party who provides an original notarized letter from the property owner.
Releasing property to the rightful owner is a primary objective for the Property Services Section. Upon notification of a court disposition, property held as evidence will be available for release to the owners. Every effort is made to notify owners that they may claim their property. Property not claimed within 30 days will be considered abandoned.
