The Springdale Police Department Property & Evidence is responsible for all items seized or recovered by our officers & detectives. This can range from lost property such as a wallet or identification, to criminal evidence in high-profile cases. They also work closely with the State Crime Lab in Little Rock for processing of Evidence for investigative purposes and eventual court trials.
