Property Room

The Responsibility of the Broken Arrow Police Department’s Property and Evidence room is to safeguard evidence for criminal cases and safely store all personal property found or retrieved as the result of an investigation.

The Broken Arrow Police Department seeks to quickly return property to the rightful owner in a timely manner. Property Release is dictated by State Statute and Policies and Procedures of the Broken Arrow Police Department. Property that we are unable to restore to the rightful owner will be purged according to State Statutes.

  1. When picking up property from the property room you must come in person and present a picture ID (driver’s license or state ID card).
  2. You must have a case # given to you by the Officer or Detective working the case.
  3. You may not pick up property for another person unless you have a notarized statement from that person.
  4. It is best to make an appointment with the Property Room to retrieve your property so we may have your items available and ready for you to pick up without any delays.
  5. An appointment is required when retrieving a firearm from the property room due to the statutory requirements that must be fulfilled prior to the release of a weapon.

No property will be released until proper authorization has been granted from the Officer, Detective, or the Courts.

It is usually best to confirm that the investigating officer has in fact notified the Property Room in writing that your property may be released if it was being held for evidence.

Found property may be released to the owner upon proof of ownership.

Valuable items that have been turned over to the Broken Arrow Property Room must be held for the rightful owner to claim for a minimum of 90 days. After this period of time has lapsed and no owner has come forward to claim the items, the finder can post a claim to the property. However the found property will only be relinquished after a court order has been obtained by the District Judge.
