Results of Santa Fe Police evidence handling uncovers issues

New Mexico

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Santa Fe Police department is planning to make changes to its issues with handling evidence.

Friday night, the City released a new report from SCS Northwest Consulting Services. An inspector looked into the department’s main evidence room back in September.

He found the staff is undertrained, items are not held in a logical order, not all drugs and firearms are being stored properly, and there are no cameras or alarms. The City says it plans on making changes quickly.
