The web-based software was developed by Sgt. Darren Vuzzo of the Marlboro Township (N.J.) Police Department with RPD Inc. Sgt. Vuzzo developed the software after reviewing his state's Uniform Crime Reports showing that burglaries in New Jersey increased from 17,455 in 2010 to 19,100 in 2011.

Nationwide, victims of burglaries suffered an estimated $4.8 billion in lost property in 2011. The average dollar loss per burglary offense was $2,185 and residential burglaries accounted for 74.5% of all burglary offenses. Of all items stolen, jewelry and precious metals were at the top of the list, according to Vuzzo.
