Our Flickr website aims to reunite owners of lost or stolen property with their goods. The website will show a gallery of photographs and encourages owners to come forward and reclaim their missing items.
After 28 days, items will be offered for sale to the general public through our eBay site. It should be noted however, that items will remain on Flickr during the listing period and can be claimed by the owner at any point before payment has been received.
Our second eBay store sells all other property that the police need to dispose of including all unclaimed and unidentified, found and seized property, along with surplus police assets.
Items from the Flickr store will be on sale here if no owner is found within 28 days.
Our eBay store offers items for sale that have been recovered from law breakers. The confiscated goods sold were bought legitimately by criminals with dirty money. All proceeds go back to Central Government to be reinvested into frontline policing and community projects.
You can purchase items that have formed part of a Court Confiscation Order under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002, from what is the first auction site of its kind in the UK.
Followers of our @LeicsPolice Twitter feed will get instant notifications of new eBay items as soon they are posted for sale.
