Property & Evidence

The Abilene Police Department (APD), like most law enforcement agencies, considers the care, custody, and control of property and evidence to be a very high priority in policing.

The Unit

In order to control this process as effectively and efficiently as possible, APD funnels all property and evidence associated with a crime to one central location for processing and storing: the Property and Evidence Unit.


The division is staffed by five civilians and falls under the direction of the Records Division. These individuals are responsible for the care, custody, and control of approximately 127,000 pieces of property and evidence.
