New Online Crime Mapping System
The Police Department, in partnership with “CrimeReports”, has launched an online crime mapping system for the community (See attached Press Release).
The CrimeReports service is free to the public and allows community members to receive automatic daily, weekly or monthly email alerts when crimes occur near their home, office, local school, etc.
Community members can also view reported crime activity on an easy-to-use map for any location within neighborhood boundaries. Crime incident data is updated nightly and includes:
· Incident type
· Distance from citizen’s address
· Event identification/case number
· Brief crime incident description
Residents can access this system by going to www.crimereports.com.
