Lost and found
I have lost my driving licence/passport/handbag, how do
I report it to the police?
You can report the loss in
person to your local police station or you can telephone your local
police property stores and report the loss.
With regards to passports, there is a form that you must fill in
(LS01) in order to get a replacement passport. You should fill in
the form even if you do not wish to replace your passport.
The passport is available from;
- UKPS offices
- The Passport Adviceline (0870 521 0410)
- Post Offices and some World Choice travel agents
- Immigration officers at ports of entry in to the UK
- Police Stations
The system has been introduced in order to combat the fast
growing crime of identity theft.
I have found some property, what do I do?
You should liaise with your local police station. It might be that
you want to hold onto the property on the understanding that if the
owner comes forward you must relinquish it or you can hand it in at
your local police station.
If you choose to hand it in then you will be given a form that
entitles you to collect the property if it is not claimed within 28
days (except mobile phones and any other unsuitable objects).
