Different property is held for different amounts of time: Evidence is held until such a time as they are no longer needed for trial or the statute of limitations expires. Statutes of limitations vary depending on the crime/incident type. Some items, however, can be released per court order or authorization from the State Attorney’s Office or, in some cases, the case officers’ authorization. Found Property is held for at least 30 days unless it is claimed by the owner. After 30 days, property is disposed of accordingly.
