Property and Evidence Section
The Property and Evidence¬†Section is responsible for maintaining the integrity of all property collected by officers and subsequently submitted as evidence.¬† The Property and Evidence Section tracks, stores and maintains¬†property¬†for criminal justice purposes and subsequently¬†disposes¬†of items as quickly as legally possible.¬† Evidence being retained as part of an active criminal investigation or held pending a criminal trial will not be released without approval from the Black Hawk City Prosecutor or the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office. Once an investigation or criminal case has been closed the evidence may be returned to the appropriate owner depending on the¬†circumstances.¬† Found property held by the Property and Evidence Section will be safeguarded until such a time it can be returned to its rightful owner, disposed, or destroyed. Generally, unclaimed property will be destroyed after 20 days unless held as evidence.
