Police and Geocaching

Posted by: admin on 11th Feb 2012

We are keen to encourage good relationships between the Police and geocaching community; GAGB is in ongoing dialogue with the Association of Chief Police Officers to exchange information, and there is a process to enable Officers to check specific geocaches if necessary (through their control room).

If you are challenged by a Police Officer then you should immediately explain about geocaching and ideally show evidence of this, such as this page, a cache page or geocaching leaflet. On the other hand geocachers may come across things which may be useful to the Police such as evidence of crime (e.g. abandoned wallets/handbags) or other information. These should be reported through the non-emergency number 101 (landline or mobile) unless there is immediate risk to someone in which case dial 999.
