Did you lose your stuff during the police raid on Occupy Oakland? Here's some tips on how to get it back.
Personal Items - Oakland Police Department
The Oakland police department has small items like backpacks
You can call (510) 238-3874 and make an appointment to retrieve your property
They will address people when they come in for appointments as fast as they can
If they say that your property is being held as evidence, let us know and we will help you get it back.
The City is distributing this flyer with more details
Large Items (Tents, Bikes, etc) - Department of Public Works
Call (510) 615-5566 and explain you need your property back, and leave your name and contact number, or a friend's number where you can be reached. You should be particular in describing your property and explain where your items were last seen.
DPW has finished an inventory of the items taken from Frank Ogawa Plaza and Snow Park, and will begin returning them on November 1, at a location near to the Plaza.
DPW did not keep signs or pallets.
They have 350 items in 30 bags of items that went together (i.e. a tent and what was in the tent), plus some other items like bicycles and bookshelves. The info is organized it by quadrant of the plaza or park where it was found. They say they will keep the property for 30 days from the raid, however the city is closed from Nov. 24-28.
As of 10/31, DPW had only received around 30 calls. They want more, so that they can connect people back with the belongings.
