Property / Evidence

The Property and Evidence Division of the Waukegan Police Department is charged with securing, cataloging, and maintaining all property and evidence recovered by our officers. Examples include, fingerprints lifted from crime scenes, lost property that has been turned in, blood evidence, firearms, narcotics, etc.

This division also arranges for property auctions of items seized during drug raids, found items that have gone unclaimed and even surplus equipment no longer used by the Department. The majority of these auctions take place at Obenauf Auctions in Round Lake.
