The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce a new service to help members of the community recover their lost property.
During a normal year, the sheriff’s office has dozens of items that are recovered by deputies or turned over to deputies by the community. Often times, there is no way to trace the property to its rightful owner. Through a new portal, members of the community who have lost property can check to see if it was recovered by the sheriff’s office. If an item is on the list and recognized by its owner, they can call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Evidence Division to work through a reclamation process, which may involve producing documents to show ownership.
To access the portal, the community can visit: www.lakecountyil.gov/sheriff and click RECOVERED PROPERTY.
