Here's an interesting one:

Police remind people where to report lost and found property
Cumbria Constabulary have lanched a campaign reminding members of the public what to with property they find.

This campaign has been introduced following confusion as to who is responsible in reconnecting found property with their owners. It is a legal requirement for a person to make reasonable attempts to find the owner of any property they find.

The Constabulary is responsible for any property linked to a crime and would encourage those who find property that they believe to be part of a crime to report this to police.

If property is found on a business or an organisation’s premises, members of the public are asked to hand this into the management who will then be responsible for the attempts to find the owner.

The Constabulary has from the 1st October no longer been recording any lost property they receive, this is in order to allow officers and staff to focus on their core policing roles.

Hitherto one handed the found diamond ring or push bike or Rolex into your local police station (remember them?) and if it wasn't claimed in three months (or whatever) you got it. Obviously if it's a wallet or bag there's a fair chance of identifying the owner from the contents, but what about that diamond ring found in the street? No way to trace the owner and no-one to hand it in to, so you keep it? Doesn't seem right somehow.

This is all part and parcel of Diddy Dave and his cohorts plan. They tell us the crime rate is going down but what they don't tell you is that the police are no longer recording crime especially crime that they know they will never get a result on. So they catch someone bang to rights guv, all they get is a slap on the wrist and an apology for the court appearance getting in the way of them committing another crime so why bother.
