Lost property could be a thing of the past after the launch of a new website that reunites people with their forgotten items.

HertsReunited, a joint venture by Herts Police and the county’s police and crime commisioner, David Lloyd, feature photos of found and recovered possessions.

It also gives people the chance to report anything they have lost.

Herts Police currently has around 613 lost items.

Mr Lloyd said: “If someone has had something stolen – or they want to report a lost possession or something they have found – then this website is a one-stop-shop to help reunite them with their property.”

Items will be advertised on the website for around 30 days or until the owner is identified.

Inspector Jeff Scott said: “Strenuous effort is made by the police to reunite property with the owner.

“Some items prove impossible to identify the owners but we know that they could have sentimental, as well as monetary, value.

“HertsReunited gives us a much better chance to get property back to their rightful owners.”
