The Roseville Police Department's Property Unit is responsible for all items that are collected as evidence, safekeeping or found property. Once collected, the item is secured and tracked until such time the item is needed for court, is returned to the rightful owner, or is destroyed.

WHEN CAN I CLAIM MY PROPERTY THAT WAS TAKEN FOR SAFEKEEPING?
As soon as the safekeeping items are booked into the property system they are available for pick-up. If an address is available the Property Unit will mail a notification to the owner informing them they have 90-days to pick up their property. Unclaimed items, including items belonging to incarcerated persons who have not contacted the Property Unit, will be purged pursuant to law.

WHEN CAN I CLAIM MY PROPERTY THAT WAS TAKEN FOR EVIDENCE?
Evidence being held for a case will not be released until the District Attorney confirms that the case is over for all defendants. In some cases, the District Attorney may not release items immediately, pending further investigation or appeals. Once the Property Unit is notified that the case is adjudicated a property notice will be sent to the owners of the property informing them that they have 90-days to pick up their property. If your mailing address changes it's up to you to notify the Property Unit so that we can contact you when your property is available.

CAN SOMEONE ELSE PICK UP MY PROPERTY?
If you would like someone else to pick up your property, you must provide a signed letter of authorization naming the person you designate to pick up your property along with a copy of your driver's license. For deceased owners, you must provide proof that you are the Executor of the Estate, or a will with a copy of the death certificate, we will contact the Coroner to attempt to identify the next of kin (who will then be able to pick up the property).

DO I HAVE TO HAVE AN APPOINTMENT TO PICK UP MY PROPERTY?
Yes, you must call the Property Unit to schedule an appointment in order to ensure that your property is available and ready for pick up. You can usually pick up your property the same day you call.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING WHEN I COME TO PICK UP MY PROPERTY?
Please bring your government-issued ID/CA driver license/Military ID or Passport. (If you're picking up property for someone else make sure you have an authorization letter).
