911, what’s your emergency?

Emergency Telecommunications Week

emergencyOur Emergency Communications Center is one of, if not the best in the nation.

If you have ever experienced an emergency, the first thing you probably did was to call 911.  As soon as the phone was answered with, “911, what’s your emergency?” you started to feel better.  After you explained the details of the emergency, the dispatcher likely replied, “Help is on the way.”  No mater how dire they situation may have been, those were comforting words to hear.

Every year, during the second week of April, the telecommunications personnel in the public safety community are honored.  This week is a time to celebrate and thank those who dedicate their lives to serving the public.  Their commitment to our community is appreciated by all of us in who live, work, and learn in the Robious Corridor.

An Important Safety Tip

Chesterfield County Police Department

lock your carIt is that time of year that we love to open our window.  In our cars, and our homes.  Time to air things out after a winter that keeps hanging on for dear life.   This is the time of year that we have all been waiting for.  We aren’t the only ones that have been waiting for this time of year.

Keep your guard up against people who may take advantage of this time of year to take your belongings.  One of the things that you can do to thwart theft is to take part in a program offered by The Chesterfield County Police Department.

Chesterfield County Police have partnered with LeadsOnline to offer residents a free online system that will help track personal property. ReportIt is a free, secure online service that allows community members to record serial numbers and upload images of personal items. In the event that personal items are stolen, the information captured through the ReportIt system will assist law enforcement in accurately and quickly identifying property. Residents can access the site at https://reportit.leadsonline.com/.

Residents can store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures, and scans of receipts so items may be more easily identified in the event of theft. This record may also come in handy when filing claims with insurance providers in the event of loss.

Police are not able to search the information residents stored in ReportIt – only the user can access the information. If a user’s property is stolen, the user can print the information from any computer with internet access and give it to the investigating officer.

The ReportIt service is a part of LeadsOnline, the online system that works with police across the country to track and recover stolen property. Metro Richmond law enforcement agencies use LeadsOnline to help track and recover stolen property.
