When will my property be released by the PD?

If the Salida Police Department has any of your belongings held as evidence in a case the following are the procedures. Items will not be returned until the case is closed, meaning the case has gone to court and defendant has been sentenced.

  • Call the Police Department 539-6880 and find out if the item(s) are available to be released.
  • If the Police Department does not have written verification of release of property, the secretary will contact the District Attorney and ask if the case has closed.
  • Once the necessary Release of Property paperwork has reached the police department, you will make an appointment with the Detective or the Lieutenant to retrieve your property.
  • Please call the Police Department to schedule appointments with either of them.
