Online Police Investigations

City of Miami Police Department Signs on to Use Online Investigations Tool to Solve Property Crimes

LeadsOnline, the nation’s largest online investigative tool, helps police instantly track and recover stolen property no matter where it is stolen or sold.

Miami, FL – August 29 – In an effort to further combat crime, the City of Miami Police Department is now using LeadsOnline – an investigative 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.

“This is the largest online investigations system of its kind nationwide. Our police investigators are using it to solve crimes by instantly searching for missing items in the transaction records of businesses across the Miami area and the country. We appreciate the support of our local businesses as they work with us to serve our community,” said City of Miami Manager Daniel J. Alfonso.

The system equips criminal investigators with the ability to instantly solve crimes and return stolen goods to their rightful owners. Property can be searched using serial numbers, suspect name, item descriptions, or other information. Searches are completed within seconds. Often, these property crimes are associated with larger crimes such as homicides, arson, and fraud.

“Prior to implementing LeadsOnline, I was working a burglary case in which there were zero leads to follow. During our Department’s trial with LeadsOnline, I searched the suspect’s name, and a stolen drill was found to be pawned by him in April,” said Detective Pierre Alce, of the Miami Police Department. “The suspect was apprehended and in court the following day. If it would not have been for LeadsOnline, we would not have been able to solve this case.”

More than 3,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide, including 40 in Florida, use LeadsOnline to solve crimes that may otherwise remain a mystery. Prior to LeadsOnline, investigators had to undergo the cumbersome routine of traveling to each business to collect paper copies of every transaction, limiting their investigative information to just their city or county. Now, with LeadsOnline, law enforcement is able to instantly search more than 2/3 billion transactions reported by pawn, secondhand, gold buyer, and scrap businesses from all 50 states.

LeadsOnline ( is the nation’s largest online investigative system used by more than 4,400 law enforcement agencies to recover stolen property and solve crimes. Each day, millions of items are added to the LeadsOnline database by businesses including secondhand stores, scrap metal recyclers, pawn shops, and Internet drop-off stores across all 50 states. Those records are instantly available to law enforcement agencies, meaning crimes can be solved in seconds, not months. The LeadsOnline system, compatible with the NCIC, serves as an indispensible, efficient, and money-saving resource for detectives because it provides a cross-jurisdictional, instantaneous, and accurate database that stops criminals from escaping detection by selling stolen items in another city. An official eBay partner, LeadsOnline helps prevent illegal transactions on the eBay website by giving law enforcement access to the world’s largest online marketplace through automatic upload of all eBay transactions into the LeadsOnline database.

LeadsOnline also includes LeadsOnlabs, a system for tracking those involved in the illegal manufacture of methamphetamines; a Metal Theft Investigation System designed to track copper and other metal thefts; and cross-checks names of pawn customers against the OFAC SDN list of known terrorists and narcotics traffickers. Each year, LeadsOnline is credited with recovering millions of dollars in stolen goods and solving thousands of crimes that are often associated with bigger crimes, such as homicide, identity theft, and arson. Based in Dallas and led by President and CEO Dave Finley, LeadsOnline works with thousands of agencies throughout the country, including the Chicago Police Department, the New York City Police Department, and the San Francisco Police Department.

Urban Planners and Lawyers Want To Win

Urban Planners, Lawyers, Development Directors Join CNU Because of AirSage Giveaway

CNU gains diverse members who desire to play a role in developing vibrant and safe neighborhoods

USA – September 23 – The goal of reshaping and improving communities into dynamic, livable places requires a wide-range of professionals to turn the dream—of better housing, transportation choices and enjoyable public spaces—into reality.

The Congress of the New Urbanism (CNU) is at the forefront of this urban landscape metamorphosis, and AirSage®—a pioneer in digital population analytics—has partnered with CNU to make change happen.

AirSage, the largest provider of consumer travel trends and population movement intelligence in the U.S., promotes transportation solutions for more sustainable spaces. By awarding one CNU membership each month during 2014, AirSage is connecting professionals who are committed to reforming neighborhoods with other like-minded practitioners who are leading the charge.

Catherine Lee, an urban planner with the city of St. Petersburg, Fla. and the July winner, is one of those professionals. She works specifically with land development code amendments and rezoning that, ultimately, can change the way a community operates. “Right now I’m working with the Sustainable Urban Agriculture Commission to make our community more sustainable- bringing farming into the city- which will allow any property within our city to be used to grow food. The CNU membership will provide me with a source of information for innovative planning that will benefit my community.”

As an Environmental Attorney with Sedita, Campisano & Campisano, LLC in New Jersey, Cristin Mustillo has a unique position to implement change in the urban planning field through brownfield development. She is the August winner. “Community planning is an aspect of the redevelopment process that I’m very interested in, and so I have been actively seeking out educational resources. A CNU membership is a great opportunity for me to expand my knowledge of walkable, transit-oriented, and sustainable planning principles.”

Jennifer Stenhouse is the September winner and is the Director of Development with The Center for Planning Excellence (CPEX) in Louisiana. She oversees CPEX’s Annual Smart Growth Summit that promotes every aspect of smart growth including planning, design, public transit and connectivity. With a background in architecture and urban design, Jennifer wants other professionals to see the connection between land use and transportation planning as well as the need to coordinate the two. “This CNU membership will allow me access to a network of professionals who are also working towards these same goals, amazing resources and best practices. This will allow me to learn from what other communities are doing across the country to become more sustainable.”

Winners of this AirSage contest will have the cost of membership covered for one full year. Anyone can enter the drawing by simply filling out the entry form here: One simple entry puts you in the running for the entire year.
