Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Property and Evidence Storage Facility
Owner: Maricopa County
Square Footage: 50,000
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Description: This 50,000 SF facility was designed to provide a safe, efficient environment. Property and Evidence is a dynamic, fast paced, multi-faceted operation, upon which the successful prosecution of criminal cases is dependent. Evidence will enter the system either through a secure loading dock and intake area, at the secure officer’s counter during daytime hours or through the officer’s night-drop facility. After being bar-coded and recorded in the system, the evidence is delivered to and stored in the 25,000 SF high-bay general storage area or in one of a number of specialty storage areas. Specialty storage facilities include walk-in coolers and freezers for biological evidence, drug storage, gun storage, audio / videotape storage and a vault for money and valuables.
