(Aurora, Ind.) – Aurora Police are the first agency in Indiana to begin using a new online service that can help in solving theft and fraud crimes.
Aurora Chief of Police Bryan Fields says his department recently began using the internet website www.IDThisPerson.com. The website shows surveillance camera images of suspects wanted in connection with identity theft, retail theft, credit card fraud, and other crimes.
Members of the public who go to the site and help identify a subject can receive a $25 reward, even if they do so anonymously.
“Every year there are billions of dollars in losses directly related to Identity Theft. There are also over 1 billion in annual losses by businesses due to Retail Theft. Citizens ultimately pay for these losses since costs are typically passed on to customers. The Aurora Police Department encourages citizens to visit IDThisPerson.com to help ensure the success of this partnership,” Fields said.
