When lost or abandoned property is turned into the Police Department owners have 90 days from the date of post to claim the property. If property is not claimed and is more than 90 days old the property will then be destroyed.
To claim property you believe is yours please make contact with the Criminal Evidence and Forensics Unit at 262-524-3773. Please leave a message if no one answers. If it is the weekend you must wait until a normal business day for a call to be returned. If no one calls you back in a day on the weekdays then call 262-524-3941. You must talk to a person in this unit to arrange pick-up. No one will be available at the Police Department for in-person inquiries of this nature.
