SRPD Opens its Property and Evidence Bureau in Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
The Salt River Police Department opened its new Property and Evidence Bureau in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the morning of July 12.
The event started off with a prayer from Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Council member Wi-bwa Grey and a welcome from SRPD Chief Karl Auerbach and SRPMIC Vice-President Ricardo Leonard.
Leonard recalled what the old police property and evidence building was like and how it wasn’t as secure as they would have liked. With the help of the Community manager, funding was secured to finally get the new facility built.

The facility will be the Community’s safe, state-of-the-art storage facility and will have storage capacity for years to come to ensure the SRPD meets industry standards and practices.
