The Evidence Unit of the Los Alamos Police Department is responsible for maintaining the integrity of evidence and property in accordance with New Mexico state law and departmental policies and procedures. The integrity of evidence and property is maintained from the time the evidence is submitted, through the investigations and analysis period, to the time it is returned to the owner or disposed of. When a case is over and the property is no longer needed, every attempt is made to return the items back to the rightful owner. If the owner can't be found, the property is disposed of or auctioned off.
