Mobile phone theft is an ever-increasing issue that goes beyond the initial inconvenience of the loss of the phone. Today’s mobile device houses our most private information: from our personal communications to our photos, passwords, and apps to everything from our banking to online shopping, and can even have private employer information.
But investigating these property crimes isn’t always easy.
The National Mobile Property Registry provides officers and analysts a single-search tool for accessing over a billion device records of activity sourced from retailers, buy-back kiosks, pawn, second-hand, manufacturers, insurers, Telcom carriers, and consumers. Not limited to only IMEI numbers, this database is freely accessible to law enforcement and doesn’t require additional authority to search.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss:
- What IMEI numbers are
- Nlets and NMPR
- How to access NMPR directly
- When to use NMPR (different case studies)
Nlets is a self-funded nonprofit, established in 1967 with the objective of connecting law enforcement, justice, and public safety agencies for the purpose of exchanging critical criminal justice information. They strive to ensure that the right information gets to the right person as quickly as possible. Nlets connects more than 1,000,000 users, 45,000 agencies, and 800,000 devices, with more than three billion transactions traversing their secure network last year.
