The Rule for Returning
Unclaimed Property
Police and Law Enforcement News
Friday, January 11, 2013 11:09 p.m.


The New Jersey Attorney General Guideline on the Property and Evidence Function covers just about everything having to do with lost or stolen property and department evidence.

It also addresses what happens when property is found but never claimed.  Below is an excerpt from the actual guideline:

When property is found by a civilian, turned over to the police department for safekeeping, and the owner does not claim the property for six months, N.J.S.A. 40A:14-157(b) provides that the property shall be returned to the finder.

N.J.S.A. 53:1-26.1 and N.J.S.A. 40A:14-157(a) state that property which is found by a state or municipal law enforcement officer and remains unclaimed becomes the property of the state or municipality, which may provide for its sale at public auction.
