Evidence Unit

Section Commander: Captain Brian Lee
Unit Commander: Lieutenant Matthew Paley
Unit Supervisor: Sergeant Mike Kelly
Evidence Custodian: Detective Chris Hallett

During 2016, the Evidence Unit of the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office stored and tracked all physical evidence brought to the Office either through direct investigation or by the Litigation Section as needed for trials.

Destruction of evidence in compliance with statutory and administrative requirements was also a major aspect of the work performed by the unit.

The detective assigned as evidence custodian maintains chain-of-custody through the evidence manager program for the items stored in the Evidence Unit.
