Here is a nice website that can show you crime activity near your home, school or work. Developed by The Omega Group, crimemapping.com pulls data from enrolled law enforcement agencies around the country and present them on an easy to read online map. The idea is excellent: if residents see three burglary reports in their neighborhood, they will be more alert and pay closer attention to suspicious activities.
In addition, you can also sign up to receive crime alerts by email, for free. Check it out!
CrimeMapping.com utilizes ESRI’s advanced mapping engine which helps us provide a high level of functionality as well as flexibility to the agencies we serve. Crime data is extracted on a regular basis from each department’s records system so that the information being viewed through a Web browser is the most current available. This data is always verified for accuracy and all address information is generalized by block in order to help insure privacy is protected.
