Our Mission: To provide a safe community where people can live, work, and thrive.
The Police Property & Evidence Unit receives and disposes a wide variety of property items that are found, held for safekeeping or seized during an investigation. During this past year, there were over 24,000 items received and over 27,000 items released or destroyed. The Unit also held two bicycle give-away events this year. A total of 156 bicycles were distributed among several participating charities.
The Police Records Unit is the first point of contact for people who walk into the Main Police station. In addition to greeting walk-in customers and answering their questions, Records staff members are responsible for a wide variety of tasks. Some of these tasks include processing requests for report copies, imaging documents to reports, entering and clearing warrants, validating information that has been entered into the Arizona and National Crime Information Center systems and taking bonds. This year, the Records Unit received and processed over 9,300 report copy requests. In 2017, Records staff processed over 89% of these report requests within seven business days.
