PropertyRoom.com Inc. has signed agreements with 26 police departments and law enforcement agencies to put their police property auctions on the PropertyRoom.com auction site. The new agreements bring PropertyRoom.com’s total number of enlisted agencies across the country to 720.

PropertyRoom.com, No. 279 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide to Retail Web Sites, auctions found, seized and other personal property recovered by law enforcement agencies nationwide. Auctions cover numerous categories, including consumer electronics, power tools, housewares and jewelry.

“Nearly every department or agency is required by law to get rid of the personal property that it accumulates, but property rooms are overflowing with items that have been unclaimed by or seized from their original owners,” says Tom Lane, founder and chairman. “The online site takes care of hauling away excess property and sells the goods for the benefit of the agencies.”

Among the 26 agencies that just signed on with PropertyRoom.com are South Lake Tahoe Police Department, Round Rock Police Department, Auburn Police Department, Lenexa Police Department and Normandy Park Police Department.
