Cell phones, keys and wallets are among the common items dropped off at lost and found collections across Duke, including at the Duke University Police Department.

If you've lost something, call the Evidence and Property Technician at (919) 684-5754, and provide a detailed description of the item to see if it's in the lost and found items turned in to the Duke Police.  Please note that any found property is only retained for 30 days.  If you've found an item, call Duke police at (919) 684-2444.

Another valuable resource to find lost property is Duke List, an online database similar to craigslist. The list is open to all Duke community members to post property lost or found. Duke Police posts property it recovers on Duke List.

When Duke keys are found on key rings, the Duke Facilities Management Key and Lock Shop (919-660-4223) can help locate owners. Also, see website: Key and Lock Shop
