Pullman PD Launches Electronic Crime Mapping Tool

 

PULLMAN – The Pullman Police Department announces the implementation of an easily accessible online crime-mapping tool, powered by CrimeReports.

 

This free service provides community members with up-to-date crime data, while providing optional email alerts if/when incidents occur near locations of special interest (such as the user’s work, home, or school address).  The interactive map allows citizens to view criminal activity locations and trends over the past six months, with automatic updates around 3 a.m. daily. Users may submit tips related to criminal incidents, either non-reported or already on the map, and can sign up to receive customized updates and alerts from Pullman PD. The CrimeReports tool is also available for mobile devices (iOS or Android).

 

In addition to improving the ability of law enforcement officers to predict and prevent criminal activity, the Pullman Police Department looks forward to improved transparency through public access to CrimeReports mapping.
