LeadsOnline's cross-jurisdictional reporting and investigation system solves cases in literally seconds – from burglary to homicide.
Before LeadsOnline, law enforcement had a hard time investigating crimes.
First, there was the time–wasting task of visiting all the area businesses to collect hundreds of transaction tickets. Then came the mind–numbing ritual of manually entering those tickets into a database. Even if the data was on disks, it required individual handling by technical staff. And by the time the data was available in their in–house system, it was often severely outdated.
As the number of records grew, searching through stacks of reports was like finding a needle in a haystack. To make matters worse, all crooks had to do was sell stolen property online or in a business other than a pawn shop, or just step across the jurisdictional boundary.
There were backlogs of data stored in boxes and closets across the country, legions of frustrated investigators, and hordes of frustrated crime victims waiting for justice.
Detectives had a choice: Ignore this source of investigative information, or give up on getting home in time for dinner.
LeadsOnline is the versatile state-of-the-art crime fighting tool preferred by thousands of law enforcement agencies across the country. These agencies use LeadsOnline to automatically collect transaction records from reporting businesses, enabling criminal investigators to instantly access cross-jurisdictional information to clear countless cases each year.
Agencies small and large choose LeadsOnline because our secure, easy-to-use service greatly enhances the effectiveness of investigations, saving staff hours and tax dollars.
COMPSTAT (Computer Statistics) is a crime analysis and management methodology that became prominent in the 1990s with proven success at the New York City Police Department. Many agencies now use a COMPSTAT management process to create an intense focus on a two-week window of time in addressing, solving and preventing future crime.
Investigative information more than two weeks old is of almost no value in the COMPSTAT management system.
LeadsOnline's investigative system assists departments utilizing COMPSTAT by supplying immediately useful information for property and suspect searches.
Most pawn, secondhand and Internet drop–off stores upload data to us daily, providing accurate and reliable transaction information accessible within hours of its occurrence.
LeadsOnline incorporates this powerful information into your agency's overall COMPSTAT management methodology, producing a positive impact in your ability to clear cases of all kinds – quickly.
