Essex Police Online Property Register

Essex Police would like to make you aware of a service available to homeowners and businesses which is

This is an online service accessible by members of the public and is the world?s largest register of possession identification ownership details. Members of the public as well as businesses can register their details on the site and list all of their possessions as long as they are identifiable by a unique reference number (e.g IMEI, serial number, bicycle frame number etc).

It takes only a minute or two to register, and listing individual items is a very quick process too, meaning that a household could list all of their identifiable items/possessions within just a few minutes.

If items are subsequently stolen, the owner can click on the relevant preregistered item and it will immediately be recorded on the site as stolen. Alternatively, if an item is stolen but has not previously been registered by the owner they can register it and record it as stolen, providing the unique reference number is known.
