Property and Evidence Unit

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office Property Room Unit is responsible for receiving, securing and releasing a wide variety of property.  Items received by the Property Room Unit include, but are not limited to, money, jewelry, firearms, narcotics, bicycles, and evidence related to various types of crimes. 

The Property Room safeguards law enforcement evidence for the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Probation Department and Parks and Recreation Department.  The Property Room is required to maintain evidence in the same condition in which it was received to preserve and protect the integrity.  Property Unit personnel are accountable for the appropriate security and retrieval of items of evidence to ensure the proper chain-of-custody is documented for potential court proceedings. 

Additionally, the Unit stores lost-and-found property surrendered to law enforcement.  Property Room personnel strive to identify the rightful owner(s) and return their property as quickly as possible.  The Property Unit cannot release items considered to be contraband, hazardous, illegal to possess, or items offered into court as evidence.
