When employees or visitors report lost, or stolen property to security personnel, it is necessary for the officer to obtain as much information as possible regarding the property.

This will include color, size, shape, model number, value of the item, last known location, time discovered missing, etc.

Security personnel should document all information on an Incident Report form and notify the appropriate supervisor immediately.

If an item is found within a few hours of the fi ling of the loss report, security personnel should again obtain all required information in order so that the integrity of the person or the security officer who located the missing item cannot be in question.
