My product dusts off a very old crime prevention tool that the police have been urging citizens to utilize since the late 1970s. If you do a web search for “Operation Identification,” you’ll get over 55,000 hits that include virtually every law enforcement agency in the United States. It is a research-based, tried-and-true approach which is free to anybody, yet rarely used. As an entrepreneur with a criminal justice background, my goal is to streamline the Operation Identification process by making it easy and online. I also want to make it affordable. There is just a one-time, up-front charge with no monthly fees. No kidding!
When I migrated the Operation Identification concept to the web, I realized I actually had three useful tools built into one platform.
- My product offers a simple way for the over 80% of Good Samaritans in this world to reunite you with lost property. Every item you tag has a unique number that is tied to your account. My website will allow Good Samaritans to safely and securely contact you with an item’s location.
- My product is a miniaturized corporate asset management system for singles, families, kids, college students and small businesses. Corporations, hospitals, universities and governments all have entire departments dedicated to asset management. I have miniaturized the system and made it available to everyone.
- My product mimics the Operation Identification concept. If you are ever burglarized, the police will ask if your property is uniquely marked and if you have a record of the serial numbers. By placing the warning signs on the exterior of your property, applying commercial-grade ID tags to portable valuables, and recording those serial numbers on my cloud-based database, you are assisting the police.
