Evidence and/or Property Retrieval

The public must now call or email in advance to initiate the process to release evidence and/or property.

be released and they will schedule an appointment for you to pick up items approved for release. Contact

the following technicians to request evidence release:

priority calls.

The City of Gallup Police Department is remaining open for its normal hours and our personnel will still be

responding to the public’s safety in the most efficient manner possible. We request that you call ahead

to schedule an appointment with any of our personnel so that in-person meetings can be set up in a
