Pullman Police has teamed up with Foundrop, a free service that helps recover lost and stolen property. Foundrop is a powerful property tracking and crime prevention tool that helps identify owners of lost and stolen properties by using serial numbers. Foundrop allows owners to recover their property when they lose it or have left it behind at places such as coffee shops, restaurants, taxis, airports, hotels, schools, parks, buses, etc. As soon as the serial number on the property is searched, the owner simultaneously receives emails from Foundrop stating where it is, who has it, and how to get it back. Estimates show less than 5% of owners record the serial numbers of their property, which is the main identifier police use to locate and return lost and stolen property to the rightful owner.

You can still look for stolen and lost property in Pullman without creating a Foundrop account or entering serial numbers. The Police Department will be posting photos of found and unclaimed property online to be identified by their owners. To view recovered, found, and unclaimed property at the Pullman Police Department, go here ; or just type “Pullman Police Department” in the search box on the Foundrop.com main page.
