Touting Prevention, Police Put Crime Info Online (News)

Reporting for Stateline, a national policy blog initiative with The Pew Charitable Trusts, Jenni Bergal highlights how police departments are using data to map crime online. She finds that police departments are using digital crime maps, like RAIDS Online, to make crime information available to the public. RAIDS includes "density map" analysis and other tools that are being implemented by law enforcement.

Through online crime mapping sites, agencies have better identified problem areas and can police smarter, as well as raise public awareness about certain crime sprees or public safety in general. With these tools, the public also has access to crime data and can make better decisions on how to stay safe without directly contacting local law enforcement with questions.

Bergal also analyzes Indiana's efforts at mapping the location of methamphetamine lab seizures and making that data available online, which has led to interest from real estate and the public.
