SPD releases neighborhood crime map

Posted on June 29th, 2010 by Sara Willy

As part of an ongoing effort to make crime reports more readily available to the public, the city and the Seattle Police Department have created an interactive map that displays all manner of crimes, including robberies, homicides, to theft and graffiti.

This screenshot shows incidents recorded in Queen Anne and Magnolia from Tuesday, June 22 to Tuesday, June 29, and almost all fall under the category of property crime/theft.

Different crimes are represented by color-coded icons. And according to the city, crimes should be visible on the map within 12 hours of being first reported to police. (For up to the minute updates, see SeattleCrime.com’s interactive crime map). Along with the map of a particular incident location, a pop-up dialogue box also offers a brief description of the crime and a police report number that can be used to look up the report on the SPD  crime report website unveiled last month.Q
