TESCO secure property and evidence storage features:
TESCO offers pickup and delivery service in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Monroe, Martin and Collier counties. You can also schedule an appointment to deliver property directly to our storage facility.
You get a complete, written audit starting with the date and time we receive your property or evidence for storage. All property and evidence taken into custody by TESCO personnel is carefully documented to include: item description, quantity, condition of evidence, submitting person’s name, case-related data, anticipated holding period and any special instructions. A receipt signed by both parties detailing all relevant information will be provided. All evidence is photographed upon initial acceptance.
All property or evidence will be stored in a secure crate or container. Small items will be placed in a secure locker with a single or double lock based on your instructions. Large items like a car or boat will be stored in a locked, fenced cage dedicated solely to that individual item. Click here to see samples of our secure evidence storage vaults.
You may select a double lock system similar to what is used for a bank safety deposit box. TESCO will hold one key and you will retain possession of the second key. In this manner evidence can only be accessed with two representatives present. If you prefer use of a single lock, you may retain possession of the sole key.
Access to the TESCO storage facility is strictly controlled but conveniently available on a 24-hour basis. No one may gain right of entry to the TESCO storage facility without a TESCO IAPE-certified representative being present. We record every transaction for your records.
TESCO follows similar secure procedures when delivering stored property or evidence to your facility for on-site viewing and analysis.
