A: Yes and no. The Monterey County Sheriff's Office and Salinas Police Department do participate in auctions, but they are online. They use the website www.propertyroom.com.
On the website, browsers can bet on the items as they go to the highest bidder. The site includes everything from watches and fine art... to cars and trucks.
The company is based in Los Angeles.
The Salinas Police Department is not familiar with any other local police auctions.
