We are pleased to announce that reportMyloss has recently been expanded to encompass the whole of the UK. This will help the public and Police more effectively address the issue of recording and repatriating lost property.
The reportMyloss service was launched a few years
ago to help Avon & Somerset Constabulary more effectively handle how lost property was dealt with. The service integrates directly and in real-time with the Police’s National Mobile Property Register (www.theNMPR.com) ensuring the owners of recovered property can be quickly be identified and repatriated with their possessions.
The service successfully replaces the often paper based recording processes that still exist in many property offices. The benefits of this are numerous and significant for all parties:
- A paper based report will likely be sat in a book at the property office – reportMyloss is an online National system ensuring the items details can be searched by any UK Police force regardless of location.
- Getting to a Police station to make a report, can be a time consuming and costly process – reportMyloss is based entirely online, allowing low cost reporting at your convenience day or night.
- Many lost items need to be reported for insurance purposes – reportMyloss provides standardised and verifiable loss report numbers that insurers may accept and/or require to process a claim.
- For the Police the benefits are significant and measurable. Forming part of the National NMPR system, use of reportMyloss makes it far more likely the owner can be identified. This not only helps clear property rooms and reduces storage costs. Also importantly it removes the burden of taking the loss report from the Police force. These savings free up Police resources that can then be targeted on more important Policing duties.
