Impound / Impoundment
Explanation:
Both of these terms are routinely used in civil and criminal proceedings.

Google returned almost 3,000 hits for "automobile" +"impound" and almost 4,000 for "automobile" +"impoundment", most of them involving municipal regulations and accident-investigation procedures.

"The victim's truck ... was impounded at heaquarters for examination. (A copy of) the impoundment form appears in Attachment D."

Or, more loosely, "the victim's truck ... was taken to the impound yard (or "impound lot") at headquarters..."

The .pdf file cited below contains the text of impound(ment) regulations in Quebec.

Explanation:
Harraps suggests the following for remiser:

(a) (voiture, valise, vélo etc) to put away

Clearly in the above context, we are more likely to say to impound. Remisé for me would be:
impounded ... pending investigation

Remisage is more tricky but you might say: "Detained vehicles" or "seized vehicles".

Explanation:
Just wondering if “vehicle pound”, “car pound” are suitable terms for the place where a car would be taken if the forensic guys need to go over the car. “Vehicle/car pounds” (UK) are places where cars which have caused an obstruction are put, perhaps not the same place. The extract says that the lorry was taken to HQ for investigation (Police Pound?). Heathcliff's rendering with the verb "impound" gets roudn this potential (non) problem.

http://www.rbkc.gov.uk/EnvironmentalServices/parking/enforce...

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

Parking Enforcement
We take any vehicles we tow away to the Vehicle Pound in Lots Road. Once you have provided some proof that you own the vehicle, paid the release fee (125 pounds) and notice fee (40 pounds), we will return your car to you. You can pay by cheque, cash, postal order, or by credit or debit card.


NB : Just a strange coincidence that the police Vehicle Pound is in "Lots" Road?
