The Lakewood Police Property Services Section is responsible for controlling and protecting all property and evidence in department custody. Preservation, storage and eventual release of property are the primary goals for this unit.
Claiming and Releasing Property
Property must be claimed by the owner with government-issued photo identification. Property may be claimed by a third party who provides an original notarized letter from the property owner.
Releasing property to the rightful owner is a primary objective for the Property Services Section. Upon notification of a court disposition, property held as evidence will be available for release to the owners. Every effort is made to notify owners that they may claim their property. Property not claimed within 30 days will be considered abandoned.
All release times are by appointment only.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday
8:30 a.m. – 4:45 p.m.
Tuesday and Thursday
8:30 a.m. – 5:45 p.m.
Found Property Policy
Found property turned into the Police Department may be claimed by the finder if the property is not released to the original owner within 60 days. A letter of intent must be submitted to the Police Department to claim “finder’s rights.”
