PRPD Personal Property Inventory Program
Citizens can now register personal property with the Pennridge Regional Police Department to aid in recovery should a theft occur. The Department has developed a Personal Property Inventory Form for residents to document their personal property with make, model, serial numbers and detailed descriptions of their property. In the event that the property becomes lost or stolen, the police department will have on record the critical details needed to recover the property.
The Police Department requests that the Inventory Form be completed and returned to the Pennridge Regional Police Department. The information will be entered into their data base, not to be released. If, in the event of a theft, the Police will be able to enter your property into the FBI National Crime Information Center computer system, contact local pawn shops and notify local police departments.
By taking time to complete these forms, the Police Department will be able to better serve you. It greatly increases the chance of locating and returning your lost or stolen belongings.
