Property and Evidence

Sergeant Monahan, Commanding Officer


The Property and Evidence Division's primary mission is to receive, document, categorize, log, prepare for release, properly destroy and safeguard all items coming into the custody of the Waterbury Police Department. The Property and Evidence Division oversees four categories of items, criminal evidence, recovered property, found property, and safekeeping of property. These various items include:

  • Cash
  • Jewelry
  • Handguns
  • Long Guns
  • Miscellaneous Weapons
  • Evidence related to serious criminal acts

The Property and Evidence Division is responsible for properly preparing evidence for court proceedings and ensuring that all items are signed out pursuant to Connecticut State Statue and department rules and regulations. The Property and Evidence Division ensures that all property that is ordered destroyed is done so in a manner consistent with Connecticut State Statue. When property can be returned to its rightful owner Property and Evidence personnel will contact the legal owner and ensure that the items are returned in a timely manner. If you have lost an item or your personal property has been taken from you, please check with this unit to see if it has been recovered. Items kept for a period of time may be auctioned off at a public auction. All auctions are posted in the area newspapers.
