Immobilise

Do you want to help to reduce crime and increase your chances of getting your property back if it's lost or stolen?

Immobilise is the world's largest register of possession ownership details and is supported throughout the UK by the police and other Law Enforcement bodies.

Immobilise is a free database which allows you to store the identification details of your valuables. If the police recover property they suspect might be stolen they will check the database to see if any of the serial numbers or details are listed.

Immobilise can be used by any members of the public and businesses to register their valued possessions or company assets and remember this is a totally free service.

Immobilise is accredited as an ACPO Secured by Design service and is secured to very high standards.

Full details about this service are on the Immobilise web site at https://www.immobilise.com/
