Items of Value

The University of University of Colorado Police Department maintains a lost and found for items of value. Items of value are likely to have been reported to the police as lost or stolen and may include wallets with money, credit cards, state-issued identification, cell phones, electronic devices, valuable jewelry, prescription eyeglasses, etc. Items of this nature should be brought to the lower lobby of the CU Police Department without delay to aid in a successful return. Unclaimed items of value will be held by the Police Department for 90 days from the date of impoundment. UCPD is located at 1050 Regent Drive (next to the Coors Events Center and parking structure). The patrol operations support staff are located on the lower level of the facility and typically accept walk-ins Monday through Friday during normal business hours. If you are not able to bring the item to our facility you may call the Police Communications Center at 303-492-6666 and request that a police officer assist you. Please note that due to other priority calls the officer response may be delayed.
