REPORTING LOST PROPERTY

Devon and Cornwall Police have introduced a new, quick and easy way of reporting lost property online.

The ReportMyloss website allows people to log their lost property using an online form, which will register the item on a police-approved, national database. Police throughout the UK will be able to view the database.

Police anticipate that use of the system will increase the chances of an item being found and returned to its owner. Lost property reports generate a reference number that can be used on insurance claims.

Currently the police call centre receives up to 150 calls a day about lost property. It is hoped that the new reporting system will help reduce the number of calls received by police via the 101 non-emergency number and also the amount of lost property handed into police stations - the majority of which is never returned to the owner.

For details, or to report a loss online, visit: www.reportMyloss.com

Found Property - most found property does not need to be handed to police. Items can be handed in to premises owners or the public transport operator where the item has been found.

Police will only accept the following items:
1. Mobile phones, laptops, cameras - anything with an internal memory
2. Personal ID - such as passport, driving licence, bank card, utility bills
3. Drugs, poison or any hazardous substance/liquid
4. Firearms, ammunition or explosives
5. Significant amounts of cash
