February 18, 2010 — Gulfport Police Department recently empowered its community by providing them with up to date crime data through the use of CrimeMapping.com. Residents can now map out and report on recent crimes occurring near their home, place of business or child’s school of attendance. The system even allows for e-mail subscriptions in the form of Crime Alerts which let subscribers know when a new crime has taken place in their area. Users can also search by address, city, crime type and date. CrimeMapping.com is extremely affordable and provides a powerful communication channel for Gulfport Police Department.
CrimeMapping.com automatically pulls information from Gulfport’s police records management system every twenty-four hours so the data being viewed is always current. Gulfport Police Department has a long history of innovation in its use of technology and is the first city in Mississippi to offer the public this mapping service. The data posted is extremely accurate as ESRI technology is being used to locate each event before it is posted at the site.
“Thank you so much for this excellent service! I have shared CrimeMapping.com with many of my friends and co-workers and they love it! Knowing what is going on around you is so important.”
