Active Evidence

If your property is being held as evidence in a case, it will be held until the closure of the investigation and or court case. After a court case is concluded, items may still be held due to Indiana law, co-defendants, appeals and other circumstances. If you are requesting items before the closure of a case, written authorization from the Prosecutors office, Detective or a court ordered will be required. Property and Evidence personnel have no control over when an item in an active case gets released.
