What is the Dubai Police Auction?

The Dubai Police’s Lost and Found Department hosts auctions of all the unclaimed items in the city. According to Lt Colonel Rashid Bin Safwan, Deputy Director at Lost and Found Department, all Dubai Police stations receive lost and abandoned items, and keep them there for around a month so the owners can claim them. If no one claims such items, those are sent to the lost and found section at the Dubai Police Headquarters.
