The goal of the RBI (Reddit Bureau of Investigation) is to use the power of Reddit to solve crimes/mysteries. The idea is an organized group of Redditors interested in solving crimes/mysteries and helping people in the process.
Witch-hunts and the posting of personal information are forbidden. The motto not your personal army applies.
If you see a post containing any personal information, please report it and message the mods.

if you are submitting images for forensics (eg, license plate reading, etc) it is helpful to submit the original image. We advise uploading this to something such as dropbox to avoid compression. Imgur and other websites often strip data from images to save on space.
Re-saving an image uploaded to social media will often provide you with a lower quality image, so please use an alternative file sharing website when sharing raw material. Consider uploading the original image in a zipfile in dropbox or similar.
