Access is very limited once items are turned into the Property and Evidence Room. It is a secure holding facility for items submitted on Greene County Sheriff's Office cases. The Property and Evidence staff attends training put on by the International Association for Property and Evidence (IAPE) and various seminars concerning the proper handling and storage of all types of evidence.

The Property and Evidence staff is responsible for:
-   Ensuring that all evidence is properly packaged and stored to allow for laboratory analysis, if required, and court presentation.
-   Transporting evidence to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Lab for testing.
