CrimeMapping is an online public resource created by The Omega Group providing an overview of designated crimes within a particular law enforcement agency. Data is published with the expressed permission of each participating agency and the information is always validated through direct collaboration with law enforcement personnel.
The default date range for the map is set to one week. However, using the filter ‘when’ on the left side, you can customize the date range. So, let’s try out the map:
