General information

The revised SPG 2002 (Security Police Act)  included changes to the law governing lost property. According to the revised law, municipalities  are now responsible for acting as the Lost Property Authority, rather than the police.

Caution

If any item is stolen rather than lost, the police (→ BMI) will always be responsible for investigating the theft.

You can also find comprehensive information about "lost property reports" and "theft reports", as well as what to do  if you find a lost item, on oesterreich.gv.at.
