The Dover Police Department and CrimeMapping.com recently partnered to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Dover. CrimeMapping.com provides an easy to use platform that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Dover citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the Dover Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur. The Dover Police Department previously used RAIDS Online for crime mapping information, but transitioned to CrimeMapping.com to provide information quickly and more accurately to the citizens of Dover.
Dover citizens can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity, and submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to their law enforcement agency. CrimeMapping.com automatically syncs with the Dover Police Department’s records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app. CrimeMapping.com then displays all of the incidents on a map, grid and analytics dashboard along with some basic information about the incidents, including the type of crime, location type, block-level address, date and time.
CrimeMapping.com empowers citizens to better understand crime trends and lower crime in their area. Recent crime incidents are displayed on a map or listed in a grid. Users can also sign up for neighborhood alerts that automatically send notifications about recent crime activity on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule. CrimeMapping.com is accessible on computer web browsers and via mobile apps. The app makes all of this information accessible anywhere from a user’s mobile device. The CrimeMapping.com Online Mobile app is available for FREE on both iPhone and Android Platforms and is also available on your mobile or desktop web browsers.
