The form can be picked up from any DPS office or online. The Bryan office is located at 2571 N. Earl Rudder Freeway. For more information, contact DPS at (979) 776-3113.

  • How do I get my property back after being arrested? Personal property should be given back at the time of release. If it was not returned, contact the Brazos County Sheriff's Office at (979) 361-4900. To claim property that has been indexed for safe keeping, contact the Bryan Police Department Property Division at (979) 209-5194 to schedule a time to have it released. You will need proper identification.

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION DIVISION (CID)
  • Who is assigned to my case? Contact the Criminal Investigations Division at (979) 209-5316 during business hours.

  • What information should I give to the officer or person taking my report? Any suspect information (sex, race, hair color, eye color, height, weight, vehicle description, vehicle license plate number, etc.) is always helpful. When property is involved (especially electronic devices), serial numbers are our best tool since they are a unique number. With a serial number we can enter the property into the state and national database to see if it has been recovered or sold to a pawn shop. It is also a good idea to engrave your driver's license number or initials on electronics. For cases involving repeat situations or incidents with people it helps to tell us if it is an ongoing problem (if you have multiple reports made with an agency already). This can help us to identify patterns. Document any information you have. The more information we have, the more likely a successful outcome.

  • How are criminal investigation cases processed? After the case is filed by the officer, the officer's supervisor checks it for accuracy and then it goes to the Criminal Investigations Division (CID) records division. The CID Sergeant makes a determination based on the information provided (suspects, recoverable property, etc.) and the case is either assigned or suspended. If the case is assigned, the citizen will usually be contacted by the detective or their assistant for additional information and/or a statement.

  • How soon will my report be ready? We ask that citizens allow at least two to three business days to process the cases.

CITIZEN PROTECTION
  • Where can I get a protective order? Contact the Family Violence Unit of the Brazos County Attorney's Office at (979) 361-4300.

  • How do I get a criminal trespass warning issued? To have a trespass warning issued, call to have an officer respond at the time the trespasser is on the property or in the vicinity.

  • How do I get a criminal trespass warning canceled? To cancel a trespass warning you have requested, bring proper identification to the Bryan Police Department Intake Division (located in the front lobby area of the Bryan Police Department). Only the person authorizing the warning can cancel it.

WARRANTS & JAIL
  • How can I find out if I have a warrant? For traffic violation warrants, contact the Bryan Municipal Court during business hours at (979) 209-5400. For all other warrants, contact the Brazos County Sheriff's office at (979) 361-4900.
