Lost Property

Important Changes

Effective from the 1st October 2018, lost property reporting through Staffordshire Police will stop. If you are a member of the public who wishes to report or record lost property, or wish to get a lost property reference number, Staffordshire Police will no longer provide this service. This is a national change affecting all police forces.

Lost Property Advice

Where your item is serial numbered, we recommend that you register at www.immobilise.com free of charge. This will help the police if your property is ever stolen.

You can report any loss at a number of places online for example:

Where the item is a pedal cycle, we recommend that you register and report the item lost at: www.bikeregister.com

Details of losses reported via these methods are made available to Police forces across the UK. This ensures the best chance of being reunited with your property. This information is already available to insurance companies and service providers using the NMPR and Bike Register system, which makes any further loss report unnecessary.

If you think you have lost your property in a public place/premises or on public transport, such as:

  • Licensed premises (pubs, bars, nightclubs)
  • Private premises (house, hotel, hostel)
  • Business premises (restaurants, shops, supermarkets, offices, entertainment venues)
  • Educational premises (schools, universities, colleges)
  • Public transport (trains, buses, trams)
  • Taxis (including private hire vehicles)
  • Airport

You should make direct contact as they often operate their own lost and found property service and are better placed to deal with your enquiry.
