What do I need to do to get my property released to me?

If you would like to know if the Plainfield Indiana Police Department has your property or would like to check whether or not the property is available to be released, you should contact the Property Room Manager, Lieutenant Gary Tanner by email or by phone at 317-210-3211. Please make sure to include your case number and a phone number where you can be reached when leaving any messages.

Property items being retained as evidence in criminal cases will not be available for release until after all defendants involved have had their final dispositions recorded with the court.


If the property item you want to be released is a firearm and was seized as evidence in a criminal or self-endangerment case, a court order for the release of the firearm will need to be obtained from the court handling your case and presented to Lieutenant Tanner prior to scheduling an appointment for release of the property.


All appointments for property releases must be scheduled with Lieutenant Tanner ahead of time to ensure that the property is available to be released and that he will be present when you arrive. Property releases are scheduled Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
