The Property and Evidence Unit

Property & Evidence Recovery Information


Hours: Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Property and Evidence unit is responsible for the handling, processing, maintenance, storage and, where applicable, return of all property and evidence in its possession. This includes physical evidence of crimes, recovered property, and property seized with or without search warrants, including prisoner property. Handling of all property types complies with applicable Connecticut State statutes, court orders and internal policies.


If You’ve Been to Court


Court orders for return of property are transmitted directly from the court to the Property and Evidence unit. This generally takes 30 days after adjudication of your case. No property can be released until the orders, with the judge’s original signature, are received. Once the orders are received, we will contact you and explain the procedure for making arrangements to pick up your property.
