Property & Evidence Section - CSI
The Property and Evidence Section is the central repository for all property and evidence that is held by the Titusville Police Department relating to criminal and civil matters. This section of the police department provides for the care, custody, and control of recovered and evidentiary property which also includes abandoned, lost, or found property in the custody of this agency. This is a critically vital function in supporting investigations, helping to ensure successful outcomes during judiciary proceedings and facilitating the timely return of property to its rightful owners.
Return of Property or Evidence
The ability to return property or evidence depends on several factors, including the type of property/evidence, the circumstances or reasons why the Titusville Police Department has possession of it, and the inability of the item to be possessed by the owner.
Here are some steps that will help when attempting to pick up property/evidence. To pick up property held at the Titusville Police Department please call 321-567-3938 to schedule an appointment to ensure a technician is available to accommodate you when you arrive. Providing a case report number to give to the technicians enables them to research the information and find out whether the property is releasable or not. Many times the officer, detective, or State Attorney’s Office assigned to the case, will need to be contacted for authorization to release the property. In other cases, a court order will determine if the items can or cannot be released.
Owner or Designee
The owner or designee picking up the property will need to bring a valid state-issued driver’s license, identification card, or passport with a photograph, to take possession of those items that are releasable. Any information or documentation as to ownership of the item will need to be provided prior to releasing the property. If the owner chooses to designate someone to pick-up the property/evidence, they must provide a signed and notarized letter from the owner to pick up the property.
