Seized, Abandoned and Found Items
Throughout the year, the North Bay Police Service will seize property items, such as tools, clothing and jewelry, as a result of criminal investigations. As well, members of the public will regularly report abandoned items, such as bicycles, or they will bring in found items to police headquarters.
The North Bay Police Service disposes of property items that are not claimed by their owners on an annual basis by way of a public auction.
Auction conducted by Northern Auction Sales

All proceeds from the Service's public auctions go to the North Bay Police Service Board, which in turn uses the funds to provide donations to local charities and events.
