Lost and Found Property

Suffolk Police do not deal with the majority of reports of lost and found property.

If you have found firearms, drugs, high value items, laptops, cameras or mobile phones please take this item to one of our public enquiry offices in Ipswich, Lowestoft or Bury St Edmunds (open 09.00-17.00 Monday to Saturday).

Do not attempt to handle dangerous items: contact us via 101 or in an emergency 999.

Items such as passports, driving licences or bank cards should be returned to the issuing agency. 

If you have lost something, this does not need to be reported to police unless it is a hazardous item such as a firearm, ammunition, explosives, chemicals or poisons: again, contact us via 101 or in an emergency 999.

If you are unsure what to do, use the form on Suffolk Constabulary's website which will direct you to the most appropriate course of action, or the appropriate alternative agency.
