Evidence & Lost and Found
- The Park City Police Property/Evidence Section is responsible for processing all incoming property/evidence and ensures the integrity of the chain of custody for court proceedings. The Property/Evidence section also handles the firearm release process, the Drug Take Back Program, and manages the Lost and Found. This unit is staffed with one full time civilian employee and at critical times utilizes one part-time, as needed, assistant.
- Found property is held for ninety days while we attempt to locate the owner, and is typically disposed of thereafter. Property items labeled as ‘safe-keep’ will be held for 90 days, after which the items will be disposed of in compliance with existing State laws.
- Items held as evidence may only be released upon authorization from the prosecuting attorney or the responsible detective. All property not held for evidence in a pending criminal investigation or proceeding, and held for six months or longer where the owner has not been located or fails to claim the property, may be disposed of in compliance with existing State laws.
- The release of firearms will require an appointment with evidence personnel during regular business hours and firearms will not be released until the owner of the firearm has successfully passed a background check, also known as a ‘Brady Check’.
Property is released by appointment only and requires the presentation of a valid, government issued photo identification.
If you are wishing to retrieve property from Park City Police Department, please contact the Evidence Technician at 435.615.5521, or at email@example.com, or submit a request for an appointment via the following webform. The evidence line, email, and webform are not monitored on weekends or government holidays. All property released shall be done so following strict guidelines and may include a background check per regulations, or proof of ownership. Please note, that the Property/Evidence section is only staffed during regular business hours, 8:00AM-5:00PM, Monday - Friday; however after-hours appointments may be arranged in certain circumstances. If you have an emergency, please dial 911 and do not call the evidence line
