Gardaí advise to mark your Property with Eircode
While most stolen or lost property recovered by the Gardaí is immediately returned to its rightful owner. However, sometimes it is not possible to identify the owner. Such items remain with the Gardaí for a year and a day before being disposed of.
Reuniting people with their recovered property could be much simpler if you mark your belongings with your Eircode using a UV pen. Read more here on the national property recovered day initiative.
