Evidence & Property


The La Plata County Sheriff's Office Evidence Technician manages the storage, tracking, and release of property and evidence for the La Plata County Sheriff's Office and Southwest Drug Task Force.

After a case has been closed by the judiciary system, your property may be eligible for release.  You will need to print off the Property Release Checklist from the Forms page and make sure you have complied with everything on the list.  You will then need to fax a copy of the checklist along with a D.A. Release of Property form signed by the District Attorney's Office to 970-247-1618. 

The Evidence Technician will contact you about the status of your request.  If approved, an appointment will be made for you to pick up property.  The Property Room is open Monday - Thursday 8 am to 4 pm.    When you arrive for your appointment, you will need to show photo I.D. as well as proof of ownership if applicable.

For any questions contact 970-382-7077
