Property seized as evidence in an open investigation is only released at the discretion of the case officer, and normally only after the case is adjudicated.

The case officer has to submit a completed Request for Release Form to the Evidence Unit prior to the release of any property.

As soon as you have obtained a court order, contact your case officer and get them a copy of it. The case officer has to submit a completed Request for Release Form to the Evidence Unit prior to the release of any property, even if there is a court order. At times, property seized as evidence may be involved in multiple cases or need further information cleared prior to the release. *If you are requesting a weapon to be released to you, the Sheriff’s Office will look at your criminal history and run a warrants check on you to ensure you are not a prohibited possessor prior to the release.
My vehicle was towed last night, do you have it?
The Sheriff’s Office will tow and store only vehicles seized as evidence, forfeiture, and/or do not meet state semi laws. If you vehicle was towed because you were in violation of ARS28-3511 (30 day hold), your vehicle is located at a local tow company. You need to contact the officer who impounded your vehicle and request a hearing within 10 days of the impound date, and the deputy should be able to advise you of where your vehicle is located.
- ARS28-3511 – Removal and immobilization or impoundment of vehicles due to suspended or revoked driving privileges, no valid driver’s license, no functioning certified ignition interlock device, or no insurance.
- You can look up all traffic laws by using www.azleg.gov
How do I pick up my vehicle from PCSO, and is there a charge?
The PCSO Evidence Unit will contact the registered owner of the vehicle by mail or by phone if we have a current phone number on file. When you receive notification you will need to contact the evidence unit and schedule an appointment, verify the amount you will need to pay for the tow charges and to ensure an evidence technician is available to release your vehicle to you. Tow charges do apply and can be paid only in the form of an official check or money order made out to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.
If my insurance company paid my claim and the property is recovered can I have it back?
When your insurance company pays you for a claim you made on your property, the property then belongs to your insurance company. If you would like to purchase your property back from your insurance company you will need to contact your insurance company. Purchasing your property from your insurance company is between you and your insurance company.
What type of activity should I report?
Any type of criminal or suspicious activity should be reported. When calling, please be specific. We need to know what activity you have observed and what causes you to believe the situation is criminal or suspicious. Please try to provide as much information as possible, such as vehicle descriptions, clothing and physical descriptions of suspicious persons, and good location information where the activity is occurring.
Examples of suspicious activity can include, but are not limited to: Someone looking over fences, someone trying to break into a residence or vehicle, drug activity, shots heard, suspicious vehicles that are unfamiliar to the area; if you are in doubt, call.
Why does the operator keep asking me questions? If they just sent the police, they would find out all they need to know.
As the reporting party, you are the first and only source of information until a police officer arrives on scene. Dispatchers are trained to ask specific questions relevant to the deputies’ response. In the few minutes that it takes for the officer to drive to a location, particularly one that is volatile, many things can change. A suspect may leave, a shot can be fired, a burglar can gain entry, or more people can arrive at a fight with weapons. The more information you can provide the better chance deputies have of apprehending a suspect, bringing a fight under control, or preventing injuries.
Why do they send the police even when I called back and told them everything was okay?
There are several types of reports that the police respond to that will not be cancelled by telephone: Domestic violence, child or adult abuse, robbery calls, 911 hang-ups. These calls are rarely cancelled even if you call back to tell us everything is fine.. The reason is a victim can be easily coerced into sounding convincing while telling the dispatcher that everything is okay. Some situations require the physical presence of the police to verify that everyone is safe and that peace has been restored.
When I call the communications department, why do I get someone different every time?
The communications department is staffed with anywhere from 3-6 dispatchers at a time. The phone system is designed so that each call is answered by the available dispatcher. Therefore, when you call several times in a day, it is possible you will get a different dispatcher each time you call because the original dispatcher may be busy with other calls.
Why won’t they let me talk to a deputy when I call in?
The Communications Division is staffed with highly-trained professionals whose responsibility is to provide community service, interview callers, and relay information to deputies. All positions are staffed by non-sworn employees. Deputies do not staff any positions in the division. Simply, deputies are not in the same room with the dispatchers, and are out in the field and not near a phone.
