The game will of course be a lot of fun, but more than anything, we get to use this as an opportunity to thank these officers for the hard work they do in their communities every day.
Dallas, TX (Vocus) September 29, 2009
Police detectives from Anderson, SC and Henderson, NC, traveled to Dallas to enjoy the Monday Night Football game at the new Cowboys Stadium, thanks to LeadsOnline, an online database that helps police track and recover stolen property. The detectives won the tickets when LeadsOnline sent an email out asking for interested fans to come join the Monday night fun. Not wanting to pass up the opportunity, the officers immediately decided that it was worth the drive to Texas to see the 0-2 Panthers take the field at the infamous Cowboys Stadium. The party will get started early, as soon as the parking lots open Monday afternoon, with a huge tailgating set-up in one of the parking lots that sit next to the impressive stadium.
"We're thrilled that the detectives are going to get to join us for the game," says Dave Finley, President and CEO of LeadsOnline. "The game will of course be a lot of fun, but more than anything, we get to use this as an opportunity to thank these officers for the hard work they do in their communities every day."
LeadsOnline purchased season tickets to the new stadium and for each game invites police officers from participating agencies across the country. So, if the opponent is from Pittsburgh, they'll invite officers from departments in the area. The invitations for the Panthers-Cowboys game went out to departments in the Carolinas, since Panthers fans are found in both states. In addition, LeadsOnline also invites Dallas-area officers to each game.
LeadsOnline is an online database that allows police to search all the items sold in secondhand and pawn shops across the country. This way, police can locate stolen items with just a few clicks.
LeadsOnline is the nation's largest online investigative system used by more than 3,000 law enforcement agencies to recover stolen property and solve crimes. Each day, millions of items are added to the LeadsOnline database by businesses including second-hand stores, scrap metal recyclers, pawnshops, 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 New York Police Department, the Dallas Police Department, and the San Francisco Police Department. http://www.leadsonline.com.
