Purpose Report It is an online service allowing people to record serial numbers and upload images for phones, electronics, and other valuables.
LeadsOnline provides a system for maintaining secure records of property you own. You may store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures, and scans of receipts so that your items may be more easily identified in the event of theft or loss. This record may also come in handy when reporting any loss to your insurance provider.
The Report It service is a part of LeadsOnline, the online system that works with police across the country to track and recover stolen property. The Hamilton Police Department uses LeadsOnline to help track and recover stolen property.
How it Works
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.
Using LeadsOnline, police departments have recovered stolen property for many crime victims. Items have included valuable jewelry, play stations, iPods, tools, computers and GPS units. With information provided by LeadsOnline, police track down thieves and develop leads in numerous cases.
