Evidence Storage SectionLt Shawn Parris

The Evidence Storage Section has the responsibility of receiving, storing, releasing and maintaining security for the vast majority of all criminal evidence, stolen and found property, which is recovered in Davidson County.

The effective investigation and prosecution of a criminal offender relies heavily on the careful, methodical and proper use of evidence.

It is the responsibility of the Evidence Storage Division to maintain not only the integrity of each item of evidence but the integrity of its Chain of Custody as well.

The careful safeguards in place ensure all property coming into their possession is processed in accordance with state laws, city ordinances and departmental policies and procedures, and helps ensure the items value later in court.
