POSTACRIME.COM : Stop Crime, Get Cash


POSTACRIME.COM is a free service for anyone to upload photo or video content of burglary, theft, vandalism, or other criminal acts that have been caught on camera for the purpose of identification by the public.  Users  can also search available crime database by address or zipcode and view crimes committed near their homes and places of work, and submit tips should they have information about a specific crime.


POSTACRIME.COM was started to help business owners and loss prevention managers fight back against retail crime, but it also has a much broader appeal to the general public.  Anyone who has had their car or house broken into or their property vandalized can post details about the crime (with or without photo or video evidence) to share with their neighbors and community.  Other POSTACRIME.COM members can search this database of crimes and offer tips and share information about specific crimes for which they have knowledge.  Crimes posted on POSTACRIME are generally non-violent and involve loss of property only.  POSTACRIME.COM is not intended to be used for posting crimes like murder, assault, rape, or other violent crimes, and these types of crimes should not be posted to POSTACRIME.COM.  If you have information about a violent crime, please contact your local law enforement agency directly.

POSTACRIME.COM exists to provide an avenue for all of us to contribute to making our homes and communities a better place to live and work.
