Property & Evidence Unit


The Property & Evidence Unit is an operation that secures and stores all items of evidence, as well as found and abandoned property recovered by Miami Gardens Police personnel. The Unit must accurately account for all items stored, and ensure the availability of those items for evidence in court and for their proper return to the lawful owners. Safeguards are in place to ensure that all incoming property and evidence is processed in accordance with State laws, City ordinances and Departmental policies/procedures.


The objective of the Unit is to establish and maintain a system of control over property and evidence as well as to insure continuity and consistency in the safekeeping of property and evidence to meet the requirements of the judicial system.
