Now you can store information on your valuables online, with Report It.
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, having the information will go a long way in accurately and quickly identifying your property.
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 Hendersonville Police Department uses LeadsOnline to help track and recover stolen property ---- everything from jewelry to sporting equipment to electronics, computers, cameras, 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.
Hendersonville PD has used LeadsOnline since 2008 and has reported many successes using the system. Using LeadsOnline, police have recovered thousands of dollars in stolen property for the City of Hendersonville and surrounding residents. Other recovered items have included valuable jewelry, cameras, construction equipment, iPods, tools, computers and GPS units. With information provided by LeadsOnline, police track down thieves, develop leads in numerous cases and make arrests.
