Property is oftentimes held by the police department for a variety of reasons including seizure as evidence to a crime, safekeeping after an arrest, found property, or the storage/impound of a vehicle. Depending upon the circumstances, the release of property will often require the approval of a supervisor and in all cases will be released by appointment only by contacting the Evidence & Property Technician at (626) 308-2855.
Authorization for the release of stored or impounded vehicles can be obtained at any time in the police department lobby and are subject to a $155.00 service charge (except recovered stolen vehicles), as well as additional storage fees imposed by the towing company.
