Everyone wants to feel safe in their community. Being able to research the crimes in your community or city is a great way to become knowledgeable and well-informed.
Many cities, counties and states provide online crime data through GIS maps. The maps generally provide information accessible by crime type, incident date or address. You can access a number of available links through our “Crimes and Crime Data Resources” website. Below are easy to follow instructions.
