Police Department Crime Map

City Police departments can turn years worth of reported crime into an interactive map for their citizens. This map is searchable by crime UCR category, date of occurrence, and keyword. Historic and current reports are all available. Citizens also get a mobile version, and updated data feeds.

Reasons for Creating a Crime Map

Every police department, whether in a small or large municipality, has compelling reasons to release their data to the public on interactive maps. Here are a few of the more common ones.
  • Reduce Costs - Putting your reports online drastically reduce the need for time-consuming Freedom of Information Act requests.
  • Involve Citizens - Informed citizens can examine and track crime in their neighborhood.
  • Easy to Use - Interactive maps are the best way to get reports out to the public.
  • Neighborhood Watches - Detailed crime reports help the efforts of neighborhood watch groups.
  • Respect - Citizens appreciate and respect transparency in their government.
