Property and Evidence
The Property and Evidence section is the repository for all property and evidence that is obtained by the Lake Mary Police Department. All property and evidence collected follows a Chain of Custody to ensure the integrity of the items collected. Standards and safeguards are in place to guarantee all property is processed in accordance with state laws, City ordinances and departmental policies and procedures.
The U.S. Department of Justice awarded a grant to the City funding a new evidence system as part of the FY 2017 Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence-Inventory, Tracking, and Reporting Program (SAFE-ITR). The program funds an evidence management program to inventory, track and report untested and unsubmitted sexual assault kits from the time it is collected as evidence to the time it leaves the laboratory and the case receives final disposition in court.
