The Police then log the details of each item into their Lost Property database.  This can take up to 48 hours. Once this process is completed, you can go to or any police station in the ACT and check if your item is with the Police. 

Please note Kicks does not hold any Lost Property after the event but items may be discovered during the pull down of the event which will be immediately passed onto the ACT Police.
