– A Free Online Tool to Help Law Enforcement Fight the Theft of Metals and Other Materials

Published by on December 13, 2019

What is is a FREE online tool for law enforcement and victims of metals theft to broadcast alerts, in the United States and Canada, to local scrap recycling facilities and other law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for stolen material.  Detailed descriptions and photos can be uploaded so nearby recycling facilities can be on the lookout for stolen materials.  Alerts are sent to system users within a 100-mile default radius of the theft location.  When warranted, the broadcast radius can be expanded.

To register, go to and click on the “Register” button.  To receive alerts, make sure to click the box at the top of the Registration form.

Part of the Solution was created by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc (ISRI), as part of a strong effort to work with law enforcement in the fight against the theft of metals and other materials.  ISRI is a Washington, DC based trade association representing more than 1,300 companies operating in nearly 4,000 locations in the United States and 34 countries that process, broker, and consume scrap commodities including metals, paper, plastics, glass, rubber, electronics, and textiles.
