Police recommend online recording system to help track valuables
Surprise, AZ (November 24, 2015) The Surprise Police Department encourages residents to use a free online system that will help keep track of valuable personal property. ReportIt is a free, secure online service allowing citizens to record serial numbers and upload images for phones, electronics, and other valuables. Should those items ever be stolen, The Surprise Police Department says having the information will go a long way in accurately and quickly identifying your property.
Citizens can store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures, and scans of receipts so items may be more easily identified in the event of theft. This record may also come in handy when filing claims with insurance providers in the event of loss. Citizens wanting to participate in ReportIt can register for the free service at reportit.leadsonline.com and begin building their personal property inventory list.
The ReportIt service is a part of LeadsOnline, the online system that works with police across the country to track and recover stolen property. The Surprise Police Department uses LeadsOnline to help track and recover stolen property: everything from jewelry to sporting equipment to electronics, computers, cameras, and other items such as designer clothing, collectibles, and other items with invaluable personal worth. The system allows detectives to search for the items using a variety of parameters, including item descriptions and serial numbers. When an item is sold to a pawn or secondhand shop, the product information is entered in the LeadsOnline database and is immediately viewable by participating law enforcement agencies across the country.
The Surprise Police Department has used LeadsOnline for several years and has reported many successes using the online investigations system. Using LeadsOnline, police have recovered thousands of dollars in stolen property. Recently, the LeadsOnline system helped detectives recover more than $50,000 worth of jewelry that had been stolen from a seasonal resident while she was out of town.
