The Evidence and Property Division at Southeast Missouri State University Police Department is responsible for the collection and preservation of evidence during criminal investigations. The Evidence and Property Division works closely with officers assigned to the Patrol Division and the Detective Division. The Evidence and Property Division also works with members of the Southeast Missouri Regional Crime Laboratory when evidence must be analyzed prior to court proceedings.
The Evidence and Property Division is also the repository for lost or stolen items found on University property. Follow-up investigations are conducted to ensure the found property is returned to its rightful owner.
If you have lost something on campus, you may call the Department of Public Safety at ext. 2215 to see if the item has been turned in. Found Southeast Missouri State identification cards are turned over to ID Services.
