Police chief orders inventory keeping for all vehicles seized
2012-10-21 18:00:40 | (0 Comments)
Police Commissioner Owen Ellington has ordered that all vehicles seized by the police from hereon must be entered into an inventory.
In the latest force orders issued on Thursday, Commissioner Ellington said all vehicles seized by the police must undergo a vehicle inventory. He says the inventory must be conducted to protect people’s personal property, particularly under circumstances where the police cannot arrange for the safe keeping of items contained in the vehicle. He says this will also assist the police in defending against allegations of theft that might be directed at them.
Commissioner Ellington says items held following an inventory must be stored in keeping with the policy outlined in the force orders and that proper inventory and towing records must be made in the station diary.
He says every effort must also be made to notify the owner of a motor vehicle promptly, when a vehicle comes into the custody of the police.
