ACPD Introduces New Crime Mapping Tool

Arlington crime map

The Arlington County Police Department has rolled out a new crime mapping tool.

The crime map allows anyone to see where crimes have been reported, down to the block level, in a given date range. From an ACPD press release:

The Arlington County Police Department (ACPD) recently partnered with BAIR Analytics to provide an additional way for the public to stay informed about criminal incidents occurring in Arlington County. The Arlington County Police Department now has an online crime map called RAIDS Online which displays criminal incidents along with some basic information such as the type of crime, block-level address, date and time.

Arlington County citizens can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area and sign up for crime alerts that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity. RAIDS Online automatically syncs with the Arlington County Police Department’s records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app.
