BEFORE YOU VISIT
The Property and Evidence Unit is responsible for the receipt, custody, safekeeping, release, purging and destruction of all property and evidence brought to the Clayton County Police Department. The Property and Evidence Unit maintains evidence for future criminal prosecution. If evidence needs additional processing, Property and Evidence Unit personnel will transport the evidence to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations Crime Lab. Once processing is complete, the evidence is returned to the Clayton County Police Department for storage. All evidence that is no longer needed for criminal prosecution is returned to the owner or disposed of according to statutory laws, regulations and ordinances related to property & evidence. Items placed into evidence for safekeeping or found property will be held, returned, or disposed of according to statutory laws, regulations and ordinances related to property & evidence. Items that are returned to the proper owner will require proof of ownership and government issued identification.
