The property room of the Police Department has two primary functions. One is to maintain what is called a "chain of custody" for evidence in criminal cases. The court rules require that evidence be stored in an area not accessible to anyone but a few, authorized Police Department personnel. Any movement of the evidence to a detective investigating the crime, or to an officer that needs it for court, etc., must be documented. To fail to perform either of these functions could cause the evidence to be inadmissible in court.
