Changes to lost property handling
Since autumn 2018, police forces across the United Kingdom have no longer been taking reports of lost property.
Lost property can be reported at any of a number of places online for example:  – Free service  – Free service  - Report My Loss provides a printed numbered ownership certificate, confirming the details of the lost item which can be given to insurance companies if they need to claim.  They do charge a fee for this service.

And don’t forget, social media is often a good way to trace lost property.
We recommend that where your item is serial numbered that property is registered with Immobilise, the free national property register at  . This will help police identify and reunite people with their property if it was ever stolen.
For more advice on where to report lost property items, call into the Police Office and pick up one of our leaflets. We will continue to take details of lost property for our local Southwater records in case the missing items are handed in, as we have had some success over the years in reuniting people with their property. This service is only offered by the Southwater Community Police Office.
The Police are continuing to accept found property as before.
Our opening hours are: 
Monday - Friday 09:30 - 12:30 and 14:30 - 17:00
