The Evidence Division stores all of the evidence and stolen property recovered in Poplar Bluff. The hundreds and thousands of cases require special chain-of-custody handling to make sure anyone who handles evidence is recorded for the court cases that may follow. The function of the Evidence Division is to maintain all items of evidentiary nature, lost & found, safekeeping, recovered property, contraband, or any other agency-held property until the cases have been adjudicated and/or the statute of limitations has expired in accordance with the Missouri Criminal Code.
