This system will search for ‘matches’ so that we can marry up any lost / found property over the whole force area. Each report generates an individual reference number which will be given to you over the phone or via email if you filled in the on line form.
All passports are HM Government property and will be sent back to the passport service. You will need a lost property reference number in order to apply for a new one.

Report Hate Crime
What is hate crime?
A hate crime or incident is any incident that may or may not be a criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate.
The prejudice or hate can be based on a number of factors including
- Disability (including learning disabilities)
- Race/ ethnicity
- Religion or belief (including no belief)
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity.
Hate Crime can take many forms including;
- Verbal abuse or insults, offensive leaflets and posters, abusive gestures, dumping of rubbish outside homes or through letterboxes and bullying in the school or workplace
- Threat of attack-including offensive letters, abusive obscene telephone calls and offensive comments on social networking sites
- Physical attack-such as physical assault, damage to property, offensive graffiti, neighbour disputes and arson
- So called 'mate crime' could also come under Hate Crime. 'Mate crime' is when somebody befriends a vulnerable person to take advantage of that vulnerability.
The lack of reporting is a major issue in relation to all hate crimes. Research shows that there are higher levels of hate crime taking place than are currently reported.
How to report hate crime
If you have witnessed or experienced hate crime you can report it in a number of ways:
- Call 101 or in an emergency dial 999.
- For practical advice and support call 101 and ask to speak to your local hate crime team.
