Lost and Found

Bristol's Campus Police Department maintains a Lost & Found area. If you have lost any property, please check with Campus Police, 774.357.2218. If you find any property please notify Campus Police as soon as possible so we may have a record of it in case anyone is searching for it.

Campus Police will retain most lost & found items for up to one (1) year, as required by law. [ Items that present a health concern (i.e. food items, infested or moldy items, etc) and items that are worthless (i.e. broken or burned beyond repair, etc.) are immediately discarded. ]

Items are stored in a secured area at Campus Police for safekeeping. We will make every effort to contact the owner of the property. However, oftentimes there is no identifying information available. A photo ID is required to claim an item.

Unclaimed property is considered “abandoned” after one (1) year. Abandoned property will be destroyed or donated to a local recognized charity. Department records will reflect the disposition of each item.
