About the Service

Report My Loss allows the public to easily record lost property online, immediately reporting the loss nationally to UK police forces via the NMPR & PNC systems. Developed through consultation with UK police representatives, Report My Loss meets all necessary standards for reporting and security.

With the Report My Loss service, the public no longer need to telephone or visit their local police station, a task that would ordinarily take up valuable police time and resources, not to mention the inconvenience to the person who has already lost something.

Benefits to Police

  • Lost property that is recovered becomes easier to identify increasing the chances of reuniting items
  • Helps to free up valuable police resources to focus on other activities
  • Reduces lost property storage costs
  • Provides an efficient process, with detailed and accurate reports, searchable nationally rather than being isolated to station systems
  • Helps prevent the trade of lost property, through adding item details to CheckMEND, the national second-hand trade database

Recovery of Lost Property

When property is recovered by police, a quick search of the NMPR can ascertain if the item is reported as lost, potentially avoiding the costly storage of found property and its subsequent disposal.

By directing the public to the Report My Loss website, police forces can save financial and human resources.
