TCPD, Sheriff's Office Launch Crime Mapping Service

Grand Traverse County residents can now track crime in their neighborhoods through a new crime mapping service offered by the Traverse City Police Department and Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office.

Both agencies have enrolled in and are now live on CrimeMapping.com, a national service that allows law enforcement agencies across the country to upload their crime data. Residents in participating communities can reference live maps that show icons for crimes including fraud, assault, arson, drug/alcohol violations, vandalism, weapons charges and homicide. Geographic details of cases are generalized to blocks to protect privacy. Users can access the site for free, and can also sign up for "Crime Alerts" that send detailed email reports when crime occurs in a user's area. 

The goal of the CrimeMapping service is to "assist police departments in reducing crime through a better informed citizenry," according to a company statement.
