The Property & Evidence Unit is responsible for the storage and disposition of all property or evidence collected by members of the police department during the course of their duties. Staffed by two Property Clerks, the unit processes approximately 5,000 items of property and evidence per year by booking the items into the property system. Tens of thousands of pieces of property and evidence are maintained in the Property Unit and are verified, adequately cataloged, and stored until needed for court release or other disposition. The Property Clerk is also responsible for releasing and disposing of items pursuant to applicable law.
If you are the owner seeking the return of any item(s) booked into the Police Department's Property Unit, you must schedule an appointment for pick-up. To make an appointment, please contact the Property Unit at (626) 570-5148 or by email at Property@alhambrapd.org. Pick-up times are Monday - Thursday from 7:00 am - 4:00 pm.
The Law Enforcement Release process requires any person who claims title to any firearm, ammunition, or ammunition feeding device that is in the custody or control of a court or law enforcement agency and who wishes to have the aforementioned items returned, to submit a LER Application form to the California Department of Justice (the Department) to determine eligibility to possess a firearm, ammunition, and/or ammunition feeding device. (Penal Code section 33850)
