Police in Oswego, Yorkville, Aurora, Montgomery and St. Charles have signed up for a service that offers people $25 gift gards if they can help identify people in surveillance photos tied to criminal cases.

In some criminal cases, such as retail theft, although police will get a good surveillance photo of a suspect or person of interest in a retail theft case, but if the person is from out of town, the photo doesn’t do much good and the case goes cold.

The website IDThisPerson.com offers $25 gift cards to people who can help identify someone in a surveillance photo who might have crucial information about a crime.
