ReportIt.LeadsOnline.com helps Columbia citizens safely and securely store important information that is useful in recovering property in the event of a loss or theft.
The Columbia Police Department is dedicated to partnering with the community to solve problems. As Columbia citizens are returning to town and college students prepare for their first day of classes, we would like to encourage you to use a free online system that will help keep track of valuable 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, having this information inventoried will go a long way in accurately and quickly identifying your property. Citizens can access the site at ReportIt.LeadsOnline.com.
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 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. CPD has used LeadsOnline for several years. With information provided by LeadsOnline, police track down thieves, develop leads, and make arrests.
With ReportIt, citizens can store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures, and scans of receipts so items may be more easily identified in the event of a theft. This record may also come in handy when filing claims with insurance providers in the event of a loss. Citizens wanting to participate in ReportIt can register for the free service at ReportIt.LeadsOnline.com and begin building their personal property inventory list.
