reportit.leadsonline.com helps Izard County citizens safely and securely store important information that is useful in recovering property in the event of a loss or theft.
January 27, 2023 - The Izard County Sheriff's Office 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, the Sheriff's Office 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. No, the Sheriff's Office or other law enforcement officials cannot access the data you stored in Reportit under your account.
"We started using LeadsOnline while I was an Investigator for the Sheriff's Office. We have been able to locate numerous items that have been reported stolen. Information obtained from Leadsonline has led to the successful prosecution of suspects. It is greatly beneficial to have the brand, model number, and serial numbers from items that you may have stolen. Reportit lets you save this information that we need to help locate your items. This system is not just beneficial in theft related cases. If there is a disaster and you lose your belongings, you can print a list of your belongings that your insurance company will need. We are excited for you to be able to have this valuable tool"- explains Sheriff Charley Melton.
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 Sheriff's Office 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 Sheriff's Office has used LeadsOnline for many years and has reported many successes using the online investigations system. Using LeadsOnline, deputies have recovered thousands of dollars in stolen property for Izard County and surrounding residents.
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.
