When stolen property has been recovered, the lab will attempt to contact the owner and set up an appointment to release it as soon as possible. In some situations you may have to provide proof of ownership. You must provide a valid photo ID for the lab to release your property to you.

Background Checks

Please fill out this Background Form and send it to Crime Lab Manager and Investigator Brian James.

We conduct criminal and employment background checks on all Colorado State University Police Department hires in addition to the basic background check done by Human Resources when hiring.

In addition, we conduct basic criminal background checks for several CSU departments needing to meet Federal and State standards for internship programs or on contract with our department.

Interns needing criminal background checks are to contact their department coordinator or instructor to complete the necessary forms and fees. The department representatives will then submit the background requests to us each semester. We do not accept individual background requests.

The general public needing a background check are referred to private companies who will conduct checks for a fee and can be accessed through the internet for the fastest turn around.
