Law enforcement professionals are extremely careful about what products and services they endorse. Operation ID is one of the rare examples of this. It was developed by the police in 1963, rolled out by the U.S. Department of Justice in 1979 and endorsed by the FBI, police and sheriffs. It was also endorsed by the American Farm Bureau and the Big I.
MyPropertyID is OperationID plus
MyPropertyID is an improved version of Operation ID. Our strategy advances the state of the art to make it Operation ID plus. Our strategy has been tested and reviewed by a number of law enforcement agencies and defense contractors. We have taken robust and time-tested technologies and combined them in a new way. Our strategy exceeds the original Operation ID requirements, complying with global standards. Our proprietary techniques tie already existing strategies together in a slightly new way.

Where do insurance companies fit in?
Wildfires, hail, hurricanes, winter weather, tornadoes, floods, burst pipes, thunder storms and earthquakes are the top priorities, and highest risk for loss, for insurance companies. Burglary and theft are a distant tenth according to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) and other insurance executives.
Where do alarm system and security camera companies fit in?
Law enforcement agencies rarely, if ever, endorse alarm systems or security cameras. These strategies have their place, but neither is what the police need to solve burglaries and thefts. Many law enforcement agencies will bill citizens for false alarms, and video footage rarely holds up in court.
Where do police departments fit in?
Police departments are at a disadvantage when it comes to marketing crime-prevention strategies. Their job is to fight crime. With tight budgets, the tendency is to focus on higher profile crimes such as murders, assaults and robberies.
To effectively fight burglary and theft, law enforcement professionals must partner with citizens. Both stakeholders must embrace the Operation ID strategy together. Without that commitment, burglary and theft will continue to be the least-solved crimes.
