Our Property Office receives and stores all public property, including vehicles, evidence, safekeeping articles, or simply found items.

Found property is returned to the lawful owner as soon as possible. If the owner cannot be determined or located, and all investigation is concluded, you can claim the article after 90 days. You can check on the status of the property by calling the Property Office at 604-717-2726 after 60 days. Some items, such as prohibited articles or identification, cannot be claimed.
