Register your Valuable Property
When property crimes occur, stolen items often end up at pawn shops. SPD’s Pawn Unit has teamed up with local pawn shops and Leads Online, a new database that compares what is bought at local pawn shops to an inventory of reported stolen items. Through this partnership, SPD can more easily recover stolen property.
Leads Online also offers community members the ability to create a personal inventory of their belongings. This inventory can contain pictures, serial numbers, item descriptions and scans of purchase receipts. All records are stored in a secure, password-protected database. This inventory is then added to the data that is scanned by Leads Online to check for pawned stolen property. In the end, this leads to higher recovery rates of stolen property and, ultimately, the prosecution of the criminals who are pawning it.
