Lost and Found

Calhoun Community College (CCC) Campus Police provides a Lost and Found service for the College. Found property may be turned in at the Campus Police Department (Building 6) so that it may be returned to the proper owner. Students may also turn property in to a faculty or staff member who will then turn it over to a campus police officer after 1 to 2 days. If you are missing property, please call or stop by the Police Department to determine if the property has already been turned in. If the property has not been turned in, you may file a Lost/Missing Property Report so that it can be returned to you should it be turned in at a later date.

Please be detailed in describing the item you have lost so we can recognize your keys, for example, from the 10 other sets of keys turned in to us. Details that are helpful include: brand name, color, size, shape, model number, quantity, material (leather, plastic, fabric, metal, etc.), size, special features, tags or labels, etc.

Claiming Lost Items

  • Valid photo ID required- Property will not be released to anyone without an ID. A valid ID card or other photo ID (State ID card, Student ID, Driver’s License, official Passport) is required to claim property.
  • Items not accepted- Items that present a sanitation risk (soiled) are discarded. Food and drink containers are usually discarded.
  • Unclaimed or abandoned items are maintained for 60 days before disposal. After 60 days, the found property is either donated or destroyed.
  • If unclaimed items include cash, it will be deposited into the CCC Student Emergency Fund after 60 days.
