REPORTIT: A Place to Keep the Inventory of Your Valuables

Local police and the Sheriff’s Office frequently recommend that you make an inventory of your valuables in case they are stolen. That list is also helpful should you have damage due to a fire or earthquake.

You can keep your list in your desktop PC, on a thumb drive or CD that you store in a secure place at home. It’s also a good idea to keep a copy off site such as in a safety deposit box at your bank.

LeadsOnline also offers a free online service called ReportIt, where you can keep your inventory. LeadsOnline is an online database that pawnshops, secondhand dealers, gold buyers, etc. can keep lists of property in their possession. Property crime detectives query LeadsOnline daily to search for property that has been reported stolen.

ReportIt has the benefit of being off site (that is not in your house or business) and easy for you to access. If you are a victim of a burglary or theft, you can access the information in your ReportIt account to provide an accurate description of your stolen property. Local police agencies do not have access to your account information.

The information in your account is secured, according to ReportIt, by Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This is the same security protocol that most financial institutions use to secure communications between customers and their servers.
