NEW CRIME MAPPING TOOL AVAILABLE TO MIDLAND CITIZENS
March 22, 2013 – The City of Midland Police Department is pleased to announce Interactive Crime Mapping, a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in their neighborhoods and the community as a whole.
Through the new mapping program, citizens are able to search recent and historic crime activity by type, date range, or geographic area. With just one click, they can get more detailed information regarding incidents within Midland’s city limits. The program also allows users to locate and track local crime trends. And, coming soon, citizens will be able to track traffic citations.
“This program will provide our citizens with valuable information about crime trends in our community,” said Chief of Police Cliff Block. “The information will assist in reducing crime and encourage a more informed and watchful citizenry that works with law enforcement to keep our community safe.”
The map can be found at gis6.midland-mi.org/police/default.htm. For more information, contact the Midland Police Department at 989-631-5716.
