City of Madison Launches CrimeReport

January 14, 2009

crime-reportsRecently, the city of Madison has contracted with a company that compiles crime statistics and allows anyone to go online, type in an address and see what crimes have been reported in that vicinity over a certain period of time.

The site is crimereports.com.  It seems to be a fairly robust site and very user friendly.

Here’s the last 14 days in my neighborhood.  On the side of the search screen you’ll find a Key to what each letter means.  When you clik on the flag, you’ll also get detailed information about the reported crime.

Is this an attempt at a more “transparent” public safety system?
