Welcome to the home of the GAGB!
The Geocaching Association of Great Britain (GAGB) is the leading UK Geocaching body, recognised by and acting on behalf of cachers. The association was established in 2003 to provide a voice for its members in the United Kingdom with the aim of establishing good Geocaching practices, providing a focal point for public liaison and supporting the growth and enjoyment of Geocaching within the UK.

Police and geocaching
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.
