The Evidence & Property, and Records unit (EP&R) is part of the Criminal Investigation Division. It is responsible for securing and tracking all items that are collected by GTPD officers as evidence or seized property and for managing the life-cycle of police records including creation, collection, processing, maintenance, dissemination and disposition.

The Georgia Tech Police Department reserves the right under the Georgia Open Records Act to assess a charge for the materials and time associated with the request.

Property & Evidence/ Lost & Found

Items collected by Property & Evidence are stored until the item is no longer needed for law enforcement purposes, and then is either returned to their owner or destroyed.

Additionally, high value "lost" items that are turned over to GTPD are securely stored with Property & Evidence. We make every effort to identify the rightful owner and return the property. Here you can submit a description of the property you lost, and we will contact you if it matches up with items that have been turned in to us. Please note that due to the large number of inquiries we receive, we will only contact you if we believe we are in possession of your lost property. If you have lost high value items (such as jewelry, a passport or electronics), please stop by to file a police report.

Property Release hours are Monday through Friday, 8am to 3pm. We strongly suggest you call ahead to arrange a pick-up time. 

Lower value objects (such as clothing or notebooks) are often stored in the building where they are found. Check with the Residence Hall Director or the Building Manager where you may have lost your property.
