Learn about crimes happening in your neighborhood

If you haven’t gotten the chance to check out, I urge you to do so. There’s also a link on this blog. CrimeReports allows the public to see what crimes have taken place where they live and work. This crime alerting and mapping service provides easy-to-read incident crime maps and automated alerts to the residents and businesses of Kansas City. The service provides neighborhood crime data in near real-time and is available now.

The CrimeReports service is free to the public and allows anyone to receive automatic daily, weekly or monthly e-mail alerts when crimes occur near their home, office, local school, or any location in the city they choose. The public also can view reported crime activity on an easy-to-use map for any location within the Kansas City, Mo., boundaries.

Crime incident data is updated nightly and includes:
· Incident type
· Date
· Location
· Distance from resident’s address
· Event identification/case number
· Brief crime incident description

Neighborhood crime data is one of our most-requested items, and this service puts it right at your fingertips.
