Police Property Act Fund

Police Property Act Fund

The Police (Property) Act 1897 and subsequent Police (Property) Regulations 1997 apply to property that is in the possession of the police, but where the owner of the property cannot be identified and where no order of a competent court has been made.  The property can be sold and the net proceeds kept in a Police Property Act Fund.  The proceeds may then be used to make payments for charitable purposes.
