The Property Room is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 am - 5:30 pm. The Property Room is closed on weekends and on all holidays. Please ensure that you allow enough time to process your property request.
CASH IS NOT KEPT ON-SITE. Instead, you will sign a cash voucher. The Louisville Metro Finance Office will mail you a check within 10 - 15 working days. Property Room personnel do not know when the Finance Office will issue your check.
A background check must be completed on ANYONE obtaining a firearm, including those with a Conceal and Carry Deadly Weapons (CCDW) permit. Background checks can take up to three (3) hours to complete. Ammunition is NOT released on the same day that the firearm is returned.
An appointment with a LMPD Drug Vault technician is required to pick up any medication. Appointments can be made by emailing DVT@louisvilleky.gov or calling (502) 574-2331. The Drug Vault technician will notify you of a time when the medication can be picked up.
Even if the officer releases some property from a case, other property could still be held as evidence. If your property is being held as evidence, you will need to have the officer give written authorization to the Property Room to release your property or you may try to obtain a court order stating that your property can be released. Property Room personnel have no control over when an item gets released by an officer.
If you call to find out if your lost property has been turned in to the Property Room, you will need to give detailed information about the item. In order for Property Room personnel to conduct a search, you must provide such things as the serial number, make, model, description, and if possible, the date when the item was lost and the area where it was lost. If Property Room personnel believe there is a match for your lost property, you will be given the contact information for the case officer. The officer will need to release this property to you after determining that the property is yours.
WHO'S MY OFFICER?
If you need to speak with the officer on your case but do not know the name or the phone number of the officer, you should contact the LMPD Records Office at (502) 574-2050.
Property Room personnel cannot give information about another person's property. To obtain property that belongs to another person (living or deceased), you MUST acquire a court order giving you the right to the property or have a valid notarized statement from the owner giving you permission to obtain the property or provide proof of power-of-attorney (POA).
Property is only held for 90 days from the date the letter is issued. After 90 days, the items are disposed of per Kentucky State Law and you have no legal claim to them. Please make arrangements to pick up your property immediately.
