The Scott County Sheriff’s Office now provides a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Scott County. The Scott County Sheriff’s Office has an online crime map called Community Crime Map (http://communitycrimemap.com/) that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Scott County citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the Scott County Sheriff’s Office to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
Scott County 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. Community Crime Map automatically syncs with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office’s records system to keep crime information updated online. 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.
