Property & Evidence

The Brea Police Property and Evidence Unit perform a variety of technical and specialized duties involving receiving, processing, storing, safeguarding, delivering, releasing, and disposing of police property and evidence. The Evidence Technicians also collaborate with our CSI investigator in collecting and analyzing evidence, fingerprint analysis, ballistics, DNA sequences, etc. Although they work primarily behind the scenes, our technicians play a crucial role in our Department as they maintain an inventory of items submitted, ensure the safe and careful handling of evidence, and protect the integrity of evidence throughout the judicial process.
