Harrison County Sheriff's Office to use new ID theft program

Posted: Updated:

Harrison County Sheriff's Office:

HARRISON COUNTY (KYTX) - In an effort to help resolve criminal cases involving Identity Theft, Retail Theft, Credit Card Fraud, and various other crimes, the Harrison County, Texas Sheriff's Office recently began using the internet website IDThisPerson.com.  IDThisPerson.com was created to assist Law Enforcement in identifying suspects or persons of interest related to criminal activity.  Those helping identify subjects on the site can receive a $25 reward.  Every day images of unidentified suspects or persons of interest are added to the IDThisPerson.com website by Law Enforcement.  The public may view these images and provide identifying information about the subjects in an anonymous format and if the information is correct and results in an arrest, the reward may be claimed. 

 Every year there are billions of dollars in losses directly related to Identity Theft.  There are also over 1 billion dollars in annual losses by businesses due to Retail Theft.  Citizens ultimately pay for these losses since costs are typically passed on to consumers.  The Harrison County Sheriff's Office encourages citizens to visit IDThisPerson.com to help ensure the success of this partnership.

 Further information may be obtained by visiting the website for IDThisPerson.com at http://www.idthisperson.com.
