The difference between property and evidence
Safekeeping Property – Any safekeeping property received from an officer will be held for 90 days. All safekeeping property will require a written release from either an officer or the Courts. After 90 days the property will be destroyed or auctioned pursuant to Georgia Law
Evidence – Any evidence held by the unit will require a written release to be returned to the owner. This release must come from the Courts or Gwinnett County officers and/or detectives. The owners of this property must contact the officer or Courts directly in order to get a written release.
PropertyRoom.com Auction – After the required time period that property is held has passed, the evidence unit may auction this property to the highest bidder. Gwinnett County Police sells the property online at www.propertyroom.com, an auction site specializing in property from police agencies across the country. Citizens can also register any stolen property at this website and if any property matches it will be returned to the rightful owner.
