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!
How does Report My Loss benefit policing
When a member of the public fills in the detailed online lost property form, the information is placed on the NMPR (National Mobile Property Register), which is accessible by police nationally.
Additionally, the fact that an item is declared as lost is also shared with CheckMEND – the UK's largest provider of consumer electronic background reports, preventing items that are not in possession of their rightful owners from being traded to honest retailers or other members of the Public.
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. Put another way Police Forces can save financial and human resources by simply directing the public to the Report My Loss website instead of handling a loss report over the phone or form filling at front-desks.
