How long is Property held?

Different types of property are held for different lengths of time. 

For instance:

  • Evidence items are held until such time as they are no longer needed for trial or the statute of limitations expires. 
  • Found Property is held for a period of 90 days unless it is claimed by the owner. 

Statute of limitations may vary depending on the seriousness of the crime. Additionally, some items can be released pursuant to a court order or authorization from the State Attorneys Office.
