PROPERTY & EVIDENCE

The Property & Evidence Unit is attached to the Investigations section of the Yuba City Police Department. This unit is responsible for receiving, bar-coding, storing, and proper disposal of property and evidence in accordance with state law or upon completion of court proceedings as directed by a magistrate. Additionally, the unit is responsible for maintaining, storing, and disposing of evidence from the local law enforcement drug task force, NET-5.

A crucial duty of the Property & Evidence officer is maintaining the “chain of custody” for evidence. The officer also ensures the availability of evidence for court; handles all shipping of drugs and other items of evidence to the Department of Justice for analysis; and receives, logs, and ships biological samples to specific laboratories for testing such as DNA retrieval and matching.

The Property & Evidence Unit is involved in a continuous process of reception, tracking and safeguarding of material that comes into the possession of the Department.
