Park Hills Police recommend free online system to help citizens keep track of valuables
reportit.leadsonline.com helps Park Hills’ citizens safely and securely store important information that is useful in recovering property in the event of a loss or theft
January 18, 2013 – Park Hills Police Department encourages all residents to use a free online system that will help keep track of valuable — and invaluable — 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, Park Hills Police Department says having the information will go a long way in accurately and quickly identifying your property. Citizens can access the site at reportit.leadsonline.com.
“An invaluable resource for the citizens of Park Hills,” explains Chief Stanley
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 Park Hills 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.
Park Hills Police Department has used LeadsOnline since 2011 and has reported many successes using the online investigations system. Using LeadsOnline, police have recovered thousands of dollars in stolen property for Park Hills and surrounding residents. LeadsOnline has assisted Park Hills’ officers in the recovery of jewelry, power tools, televisions and electronic items. With information provided by LeadsOnline, police track down thieves, develop leads in numerous cases and make arrests.
Citizens can store an unlimited number of 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 Report It can register for the free service at reportit.leadsonline.com and begin building their personal property inventory list.
During Fire Prevention Month this past October, members of the Park Hills Fire Department visited 150 students at the Julie Learning Center and Ft. Wright Elementary. Students learned about Fire Prevention Safety and all of the equipment used by firefighters. Students were also given a tour of the fire engine and demonstration of the protective gear. We are proud of our fire department members for taking the time to teach children fire safety!
