Property Room.com, the auction site known for making police auctions available to a nationwide audience, has signed on with the Campbellsville Police Department.
The site conducts online auctions from the law enforcement agency's forfeited, seized, found or surplus items, which often end up collecting dust in the property rooms of law enforcement agencies and city municipalities.
The Campbellsville Police Department joins almost a dozen other local Kentucky police departments and municipalities, including Lexington and Fayette County, in adopting the services of Property Room.
Founded by former police officers, Property Room provides an auction platform for products from more than 2,800 police departments and municipalities nationwide. Generally, in the past, police departments and municipalities had offered these unclaimed items in a live public auction. Now, all Campbellsville residents can conveniently access hundreds of bargains with the speed of an online auction from the comfort of their home.
"Property Room is overjoyed by the partnership with the Campbellsville Police Department," said PJ Bellomo, CEO for Property Room.com. "We expect that our customer base and online expertise will prove to be a great fit for Campbellsville."
The auctions Property Room facilitates relieve the city from the time and expense of holding their own auctions and generate proceeds that are later returned to the community. To date, these communities across the United States have benefited with more than $41 million in returned proceeds.
Items up for bid cover every category of consumer goods, from watches, jewelry and coins, to laptops, power tools and cars. Unique and offbeat items on the website have included eight-person bikes, coffins, Persian rugs, kayaks and most recently a state-of-the-art, unused X-ray machine.
"We offer tremendous value and streamlined solution to law enforcement and municipal partners, as well as online shoppers looking for great deals," Bellomo said. "It's a win for everyone involved, because Property Room manages the entire process, offers fantastic bargains to consumers, and returns a percentage of proceeds back to the community."
With a team of trained inventory experts, Property Room rigorously evaluates all merchandise listed on the site, and destroys all counterfeit merchandise. Property Room works with many of the largest law enforcement agencies in the country, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, among others.
