Property & Evidence Unit


The mission of the Cleveland Police Department’s Property and Evidence Unit is to maintain the care, custody, and control of all items of evidence of criminal cases until a final disposition is obtained by the courts. Property and Evidence also secures items collected for safekeeping, found, or abandoned property and strives to return all recovered, found, or abandoned property back to its rightful owners.
