Property rooms, or evidence rooms, are secure areas used to store seized property, stolen property, and evidence to be used in court. They are typically located in a police station.[1] Evidence or property in most cases may only be handled by technicians in order to preserve the chain of custody.[2] All evidence taken in or out has to be tagged, logged and barcoded.
