I have a court order that requires Santa Rose Police Department to return my property, why do I still need an appointment?
By law, the Santa Rosa Police Department is allowed 10 days to return property upon receipt of a court order. This allows the investigating officer to be notified of the order and to determine if the property is still needed for the investigation. If so, the investigator may contact the court and notify a judge why the property should remain in the custody of the Santa Rosa Police Department. The judge then makes a determination whether the property should be returned or remain in police custody.
