The Evidence Control Section oversees all inventory procedures for property in the custody of the Tampa Police Department. Specifically, this unit performs various tasks related to in custody property, impounded vehicles and auctions.
The Unit has two operational locations; the main police headquarters building and the Police Impound Lot. The main headquarters building is where smaller items retained for evidence or safe keeping is stored. Additionally, all narcotics, firearms and currency are stored there in a secure vault. All of the administrative functions are conducted at the main building as well.
The Police Impound Lot is used primarily to store vehicles, boats and larger pieces of evidence or seized property. Vehicles impounded by the department for reasons other than evidentiary value or seizure are not stored or processed by the Police Impound Lot.
AUCTION of SEIZED PROPERTY:
The Tampa Police Department utilizes the service of PropertyBureau.com for articles other than motor vehicles and the Tampa Machinery Auction at 11720 U.S. Highway 301, Thonotosassa, Florida for boats and motor vehicles. You may visit their websites for further information.
