Supervisor: Sergeant Joseph Yamin
The Property Room is staffed by one full-time and two part-time civilian employees and handles all of the property and evidence that is brought into the Dearborn Police Department, including narcotic evidence. In FY2020, the Property Room logged 5,629 pieces of evidence. Many of the items are processed for auction or turned over to other city departments for use. All of the unclaimed money is processed and turned over to the City’s Finance Department, which then forwards all unclaimed funds to the State of Michigan.
The Property Room also handles the destruction of firearms seized in violation of the firearms laws of Michigan, or weapons surrendered voluntarily by owners. The Property Room also orders, stocks, and issues all of the department’s office supplies.
