Lost and found - traditional police role changes
1 Feb 2019

Cambridgeshire Constabulary is set to join other police forces nationwide by ceasing to take reports of lost property and accepting only certain types of found item.

The changes will take effect nationally from 1 February after the Chief Constables� Council agreed it as a way of reducing non-essential demand and the associated costs and bureaucracy generated for call centres and front counters.

The police service has traditionally accepted the responsibility of recording lost and found property, despite there being no statutory duty to maintain a system of recording non-evidential property.

Found items dealt with by police will reduce and a consistent approach will be adopted across the country. This will help reduce call volumes and remove an unnecessary burden on policing.
