Mission Accomplished

Lakewood Police Department

(Recently) I was unable to get a record back for the victim who had provided a fake name. The SSN he gave was to a dead man out of New Mexico. I spent approximately two hours searching through iLeads and public records databases available to me. I was unable to determine the males true identity. Detective Feik heard of my plight and offered to search Lumen for me. I do not currently have access nor am trained on Lumen.

Detective Feik had identified my victim within about five minutes. I was shocked and very thankful for the powerful search powers of Lumen.

Thanks

I wanted to tell you that I love Lumen. I’ve solved my 3rd Hit and Run Crash tonight that had been open for a while. I decided to use Lumen again and BAM!!! The information from my suspect popped up with a phone number and matching address. I called her and she admitted to the crash. I freaking love Lumen. I used CopLink a lot but this Lumen is so flipping awesome!!!

So the robbery at Sonic?... Acker did a composite sketch of the suspect?... and due to Lumen, I was able to match the suspect via mugshots in Lumen… to the same suspect an officer contacted the next day and also that he has history of marijuana usage in South Denver… Wouldn’t have been able to do that without Lumen…

I have an LPR success story which just happened on 10/10/17 at the Super target in Arvada.

An attempted armed robbery occurred at an ATM in the Target parking lot. Luckily it was observed by an off duty Thornton Officer. The Thornton Officer was able to provide our dispatch with a licensee plate of the vehicle and suspects descriptions.

Case Det Buemi ran the plate through Lumen and received several LPR hits out of Wheat Ridge and Arvada regarding the suspect's plate. The last LPR hit was out of Wheat Ridge on 10/09/17. Based on the Wheat Ridge LPR hit we responded to the location and set up surveillance. Although the vehicle was not there when we arrived on scene it pulled in as we were re-checking the lot lot.

After confirming the plate was and vehicle matched the information provided by the Thornton Officer, we were able to identify the driver and subsequently the passenger who confessed to the attempted armed robbery. All of this happened within 1 hr of the attempted robbery and locating the LPR alert.

This is a great example of the sharing of LPR data in an accessible database.

Just had a good result with LUMEN. I just had a call looking for a C-5F (Assault) out of Grand Junction Colorado (CFS 17442768). The suspect was known to us (she is in MFR), but we had no photo. I logged into LUMEN, and in less than a minute I had 3 photographs of her that helped me immediately identify her when I saw her.

See Criminal Mischief 17-39394. Road rage case. Suspect vehicle listed to Blackhawk, CO. Owner had multiple mugshots in LUMEN. There were issues with making the photo lineup, but once I finally manipulated the system enough (it didn’t want to give me the most recent mugshot but I found a workaround), I was able to make a photo lineup where the victim identified the suspect.

It also listed 3 potential phone numbers for the suspect. The first 2 were disconnected, but the 3rd was my suspect.

Last night we had a suspicious 911 call of an unknown woman screaming for help. I ran the number through Lumen and found Fort Collins had a call with the number the week prior and associated it to a female. Around the same time a vehicle was located in the area belonging to this same female, connecting the dots. She ended up not being in danger but Lumen solved the puzzle quickly for us.

Several weeks before that I found a car without a plate in the parking lot of a motel. Running the VIN in Lumen I found two people associated with the car, one of them had warrants. Lumen also had booking photos of this subject so I knew who I was looking for. The motel doesn’t keep good records so I didn’t get him that night, but I would have been nowhere without Lumen.

Thanks for this program it’s been nice to have on patrol.
