is a tool for law enforcement that allows you to alert the scrap industry of significant thefts of materials in the United States and Canada. Upon validation and review, alerts you post are broadcast by email to all subscribed users within a 100 mile radius of where the incident occurred.

The new design provides simpler user interface for new user registration and submission of alerts. It has also added more categories of materials including vehicles, batteries, cargo etc. The search option now includes advanced features such as filtering by Alert ID, location, range, materials involved or title description. The customers can also select multiple locations to receive alerts. Also, many duplicate accounts are being merged into one.

The original website launched by the ISRI in 2008 has so far resulted in 235 arrests over scrap metal theft and has recovered more than $1.3 million worth property.
