In the state of Florida, we are required under Florida State Statute ch. 493 to do a full inventory of items located in the vehicle at the time of repossession. You are then notified by mail (to the last known address) of the charges and usually company policy regarding when you can pick up your belongings. We are allowed to charge for our agent's time to inventory the vehicle and storage of the property if we choose. It's up to each company to decide what the fees will be. The state of Florida states your tag is considered personal property and is redeemed at the same time as the rest of your personal property.

Yes. Any property left in the vehicle when it was repossessed is additional property, not part of the repossession. As private property, the repossession company is liable to inventory the porperty and store it so that it may be recovered. State laws vary a bit, but the standard storage limit is thirty days. During this time they may assess a storage fee. You, the property owner must pay this fee to recover your property. Property that is not recovered in the time alloted by law may be discarded as the company sees fit.

What can you do when a repossession company will not return your personal belongings unless you pay a charge and will the police help you in getting your things back?

It depends on which state you live in, so check the law. In Florida, anything inside a towed or repossessed car is still the property of the owner. The repo company may have a right to take back what property they own by default (in this case, you car for non-payment); however, they have no legal right to keep your other property or charge you for its return. That is considered theft. You can call your local PD or courthouse and they can tell you what to do. If it is considered theft in your state, call the police and they will respond to the repo company to help you retreive your property.
