EPD Uses New Website to Identify Crime Suspects

A notice from the Evanston Police Department.

From the EPD:

In an effort to help resolve criminal cases involving Identity Theft, Retail Theft, Credit Card Fraud, and various other crimes, the Evanston Police Department recently began using the website www.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 this site can receive a $25 reward.  Images of unidentified suspects or persons of interest are added to the IDThisPerson.com website by Law Enforcement.  The public can view these images and provide identifying information about the subjects in an anonymous format. 

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 Evanston Police Department encourages citizens to visit www.IDThisPerson.com to help ensure the success of this partnership in reducing thefts and financial crimes within Evanston.
