“More than 2,700 law enforcement agencies and businesses across the country are using LeadsOnline. A system that enables detectives to search for suspects and stolen property across secondhand stores, scrap metal recyclers, precious metal buyers, pawn shops, and internet (eBay) drop-off stores both locally and nationwide.
Dave Finley, CEO of LeadsOnline says, “The system is designed to benefit countless victims of crime. We’re excited about the opportunity to serve Dodge County and are expecting great results,”
The system equips criminal investigators with the ability to instantly solve crimes and return goods to their rightful owners. Property can be searched using serial numbers, suspect name, item descriptions, or other information. Most searches are completed within seconds. Often, these property crimes are associated with larger crimes such as homicides, arson, and fraud.
Sheriff Patricia Ninmann said about the new system, “This is the largest online investigative system of its kind nationwide. Our investigators are using it to solve crimes ranging from burglaries to homicides by instantly searching for missing items in the transaction records of businesses across the area and the country. We appreciate the support of our local businesses as they work with us to serve our community."
