The Killeen Police Department and Bell County Crime Stoppers are educating area residents about their free Report It program at local businesses.
Starting at the Killeen Walmart from 4 to 8 p.m. today, the Killeen Police Department will be outside various businesses educating patrons about the Report It program.
The program allows residents to store an unlimited amount of serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures and scans of receipts so items may be more easily identified in the event of theft.
The recorded list may help in filing insurance claims and help recover possessions by allowing police to search an online database of reportedly stolen items.
The Killeen Police Department has used LeadsOnline, the stolen items database, since July 2004 and recovered thousands of dollars in stolen property for Killeen residents.
Residents wanting to participate in Report It can register for the service at reportit.leadsonline.com.
