   Property Return
    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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
