The Support Services Section includes the Records Unit and Property & Evidence Unit. This Section is under the direction of Manager Doug Reed. The following explains some of job functions of these units.
The Records Unit is responsible for storing, indexing and disseminating records produced by police officers in the course of their duties. All of the reports generated by calls may be accessed through the Records Unit. Additionally, arrest warrants are housed in records for immediate confirmation for officers in the field. Employees in this division enter warrants, missing persons, stolen articles and guns, and stolen and impounded vehicles into state and national law enforcement databases. The Records Unit is open for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Property & Evidence Unit
The main purpose of the Property & Evidence Unit is to maintain any property and evidence that comes under the control of the police department. With that comes the responsibility of storing all the items, making it available for investigative or court purposes, keeping track of it and returning it to the owner as soon as possible. The unit is also responsible for disposal/destruction of items in an authorized manner. Unclaimed bikes are released to non-profit organizations in Chandler as a charity benefit. Any additional unclaimed property is sent to the City of Chandler’s auction vendor Sierra Auction. If you have questions regarding auctions, please contact Sierra Auctions at (602) 242-7121 or visit their website.
