Every year, thousands of items are seized by us as we investigate offences such as burglary, theft and fraud. Despite their best efforts, officers are sometimes unable to identify the property's rightful owners. In these cases, police forces can sell the items and put the money raised back into community projects.
Wilson’s, an independent auction company, currently sell these items on our behalf. They work with over 40 law enforcement agencies in the UK and have regular unreserved government auctions.
While they do not hold any auctions in the West Midlands, you can find your nearest auction or bid online via their smartphone app or website.
