The Monroe County Office of the District Attorney has partnered with LeadsOnline, a leading technology service dedicated to assisting law enforcement with the recovery of stolen goods that have been sold to pawn shops and other second-hand goods vendors.
LeadsOnline is now offering a free property inventory service directly to the public. The service, known as ReportIt, allows registered users to securely 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.
ReportIt is provided free of charge so that you may be prepared in the event of a theft or loss. It's a proactive tool that allows you to easily catalog information about your valuables. This includes serial numbers, owner applied numbers, photos of property and scans of receipts.
Best of all, it's completely internet based, so you never have to worry about losing the data you have saved. You can retrieve the information at any time by simply logging into the service.
To sign up for ReportIt, simply visit https://reportit.leadsonline.com/ and register for an account.
Once registered, you can store information about your valuables, including scans of receipts and photographs of the items.
In the event of a loss, you can log into your account and print out the information and provide it to law enforcement or your insurance company.
ReportIt is provided to you because your local law enforcement agency wants you to be prepared in the event of a theft or loss. It's a proactive tool that allows you to easily catalog information about your valuables. This includes serial numbers, owner applied numbers, photos of property and scans of receipts. It's completely internet based, so you never have to worry about losing the data you have saved.
ReportIt is free and available to residents in the jurisdictions LeadsOnline serves, and each account may store up to 100 items. If you need additional storage, just email us at email@example.com. Corporate and small business accounts are available upon request.
It's the smart thing to do. Nobody expects to be the victim of property crime, but if it does happen, you'll need to be able to provide the information to law enforcement and your insurance provider.
The short answer is yes. But, if you want the details, here it goes... The information is password protected and is accessed via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) network connection. This is the same type of connection used when you access your bank account online. The information you enter is also protected by the same high-level security measures that are used by financial institutions and government agencies.
Anything of value – think about collectibles, jewelry, electronics, machinery, lawn equipment, and even designer clothes and handbags.
No, your information can only be accessed using your username and password. Should your property go missing, you'll be able to print the information from any computer with internet access and give it to your detective.
You can download all of the ReportIt Community Tools here. This tool kit includes flyers and even a "How to use ReportIt" video that can be shown at neighborhood watch meetings.
