Lost and Found Property

Amy Pullen – Surrey Police, Communications Officer

From Friday, 1 February 2019, police forces across the United Kingdom will limit the types of reports of found property made by members of the public at front counters and via 101.

This national move comes after discussions between police forces and the National Police Front Counters Forum (NPFCF). There is no statutory duty for police forces to maintain a system of recording non-evidential property (lost and found) and in a bid to reduce non-essential demand and associated costs and bureaucracy, a proposal to cease the recording of found property reports was approved by the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC).

Fraudster Warning

Cllr Metin Huseyin

Beware of a fraudsters operating in Bookham. This flyer refers to Joe’s Roofing but we are also lead to believe that”Reg’s Gutters” are the same people. An older Bookham resident was conned out of £1500 for two hours work on his roof that wasn’t done. Be very careful when answering your door to unknown trades people.
