Biloxi Police promote free online property service

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

If something you love is lost or stolen, your local law enforcement wants to help you get it back. But they can't help if you can't identify your property. That's why the Biloxi Police Department is recommending that residents take advantage of a free, secure online service to record serial numbers and upload images for phones, electronics, and other valuables. 

LeadsOnline is a service police have used for years. That company has now developed a new service, ReportIt, that allows residents to store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures and scans of receipts so items may be more easily identified if stolen or lost. The record may also be helpful in filing insurance claims. 

"For years, the Biloxi Police Department has leveraged available technologies with the mission of detecting, identifying and apprehending criminals," Sgt. Louis Moran said. "By registering these items, if they are sold to pawn or secondhand shops they are immediately viewable by participating law enforcement across the country through a variety of search parameters."

Citizens wanting to participate in ReportIt can register for the free service at reportit.leadsonline.com and begin building their personal property inventory list.
