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 21,000 items received and over 22,000 items released or destroyed. The Unit also held two bicycle give-away events this year. A total of 192 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 is 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, to name a few. This year, the Records Unit received and processed over 10,000 report copy requests. Personal identifying information must be redacted before the report is released. In 2018, Records staff processed 91% of these report requests within seven business days.
