Gathering and maintaining property and evidence is essential to law enforcement. In Broomfield, two property/evidence technicians, overseen by a sergeant, ensure that specific standards and directives are met when handling and disposing of property in a timely manner.
When the Department comes in custody or possession of property or evidence in the performance of their duties, it is barcoded and properly stored in the restricted access Property and Evidence Room. Bar coding all property ensures it is tracked, audited, and maintained for as long as necessary. At the end of that time, the property is either returned to its owner or disposed.
