The property and evidence section stores, safeguards and properly disposes of all property that comes into the custody of the Lexington Police Department. The majority of items entered into the property room are evidence of a crime and held for court purposes. The department strives to maintain property in the same condition as it was received.
All reasonable efforts are made to return property to its rightful owner unless it must be held for court purposes or is deemed to be contraband.
Otherwise, property is disposed of in accordance with legal requirements.
