Evidence collected during an examination attended by the agency of jurisdiction will be signed over to them at the conclusion of the exam. Evidence recovered during examinations that are not attended by law enforcement will be held at the OME for a period of time before disposal.
If you are contacted by the OME regarding evidence on one of your cases please respond promptly. If you wish to retain the evidence we will need you to come to the OME to sign an evidence release form. If you do not require this evidence for your investigation, please provide written authorization to the OME on your jurisdiction’s letterhead to dispose of that evidence.
Your prompt response to our inquiry as to disposition of the evidence is appreciated.
