- From the above date, the MET will:
- No longer formally record or issue lost property reference numbers.
- Only take in found property in limited circumstances.
- Continue to provide the best advice possible, including signposting you to other organisations who would be better placed to assist.
If you have been directed to report lost property to the police by your insurance company or service provider please download the lost property letter found under “Related publications” which confirms that the Metropolitan Police Service no longer provides reference numbers in these circumstances.
If you lose any item which is dangerous and could cause risk of harm, please contact us immediately on 999
