The Athens-Clarke County Police Department and LexisNexis Risk Solutions recently partnered to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Athens-Clarke County. ACCPD now has an online crime map called Community Crime Map (http://communitycrimemap.com/) that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts citizens about crimes in their area, and allows ACCPD to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
County residents can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area, and sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically emails a breakdown of recent crime activity.
Community Crime Map automatically syncs with ACCPD’s records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app. Community Crime Map cleans and geocodes the crime data, 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.
The Athens-Clarke County Community Crime Map can be accessed by going to https://communitycrimemap.com.
