LOS ANGELES, Calif.–The Los Angeles Police Department today launched a new crime-mapping system that will allow people to look up daily updates on crime in their communities.
The system will allow people to view data on such violent crimes such as homicides, rapes, aggravated assaults, and robberies, and property crimes including burglaries, auto thefts and other thefts, the LAPD reported.
Under the system, the LAPD will provide data that will be filtered and mapped geographically to the hundred-block location of the crime. The data can be organized in various ways, including chronologically and geographically.
Money for the Crimemapping program was provided by the Los Angeles Police Foundation, which funds the LAPD’s official website as well as essential police equipment and programs not provided for in the city’s budget.
