Welcome to the Massillon Police Department Evidence/Property Room
When property or evidence comes into the custody of the Massillon Police Department, a report is generated, and the items are labeled with a case number and documented in our INTERBADge® System. The officer who recovered the items then is responsible for securing the property in our Evidence Locker. The Property Officer then removes the property from the Evidence Locker and processes the property. The Property Officer is responsible for providing the necessary evidence for all court hearings and maintaining the Chain of Custody information for all evidence. The Property Officer also is responsible for the disposal of all recovered property, which may involve returning the property back to the original owner, or for the destruction of the property.
The Massillon Police Department also conducts an annual Auction with property
that has not been claimed and has been legally cleared for disposal.
