On September 12, 2011, the Hanover Park Police Department arrested Robert Becksted 38, of the 1000 block of Countryside Drive, Hanover Park, for possession of stolen property, after utilizing the newly implemented Leads on Line Pawn and Second Hand Sale Tracking Program.
In May of 2011, the Hanover Park Police Department recommended the use of Leads on Line and the Village Board passed an ordinance requiring pawnshops and second hand stores to the use of the software.
The Leads on Line software records and tracks property taken in by these businesses. The use of technology to fight crime and become more efficient is a priority of Chief of Police David Webb. The department recently won the International Association of Chiefs of Police Innovation in Technology Award for the use of a computer based program for information sharing and community policing.
The use of Leads on Line is in line with the Village Boards new vision statement of “offering convenience through technology”. Village President Rod Craig supported this initiative from the very beginning stating “any use of technology to curb crime and minimize the time an officer must rifle through pawnshop records looking for stolen items significantly contributes to the time our officers spend on the street”.
