The Queensland Police Commissioner has authorised Policelink to take online reports of lost property.
The QPS receives over 38,000 lost property reports per year so the time savings will be substantial for all concerned.
Acting Superintendent Kevin Fitzgibbon said the new online reporting system would provide a more instantaneous service for community members who currently contact Policelink via phone or attend a police station to report lost property.
“This new system saves valuable policing time and resources that were previously allocated to lost property reporting, and provides better service to the public with a report number to their nominated email address within minutes,” Acting Superintendent Fitzgibbon said.
“This new system will allow us to redirect resources to frontline officers that will allow us to strengthen the Service’s capability to prevent, disrupt, respond and investigate crime all while providing a better service to the community.”
