Property or Evidence Release

The public can retrieve their property from the Property and Evidence Division under certain conditions.

Can I retrieve my property?

All property received by the Property/Evidence Division as evidence will be subject to use as evidence in the appropriate court(s).

When appropriate, the Portland Police Bureau will make a fair attempt (by notice) to return all lawful property still held by the Property/Evidence Division to its legal or proper owner.

Once given notice, the owner has 60 days to claim the property. If the property is not claimed within 60 days, it may be disposed of.

Please call ahead to be sure your property is available.
