May 19, 2016
SAN DIEGO, CA (May 19, 2016) – Because a better-informed citizenry has proven effective in community-oriented policing efforts to reduce crime and strengthen community relationships, TriTech is proud to release the next version of CrimeMapping.com. This latest generation of an interactive public crime mapping service provides a more responsive design for access from tablets and mobile devices, as well as improved site navigation, sharper visuals, and enhanced symbology. Most importantly to subscribing agencies and its community is the ability to display sex offender data and receive alerts of when sex offenders move in or out of areas you have selected, Broward County being the first county in the country to display this data.
- CrimeMapping.com is a public resource providing an overview of designated crimes within a particular law enforcement agency. Data is published with the expressed permission of each participating agency and the information is always validated through direct collaboration with law enforcement personnel.
- Citizens can search on CrimeMapping.com by an address or feature (such as a park or school) or simply find a subscribing agency. Data can be filtered by date range, types of crime, and distance, and users can drill down to each individual record to view more information. Crime Alerts allows citizens to get detailed and timely crime data information from a home address and their children’s school.
- Participating Law Enforcement agencies can now elect to have sex offender data made available to its community on CrimeMapping.com. If your agency supplies sex offender data, you will be able to view the location of offenders on the map and subscribe to alerts when a sex offender moves in or out of areas you have selected.
