March 02, 2010 — In an effort to improve safety and keep its citizenry informed, the Police Department in Goldsboro, North Carolina has recently empowered its community by providing them with the ability to access crime data through the use of CrimeMapping.com. This mapping service will allow citizens to map out recent crimes and print reports concerning crimes occurring near their home, place of business or their 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.
The data posted to CrimeMapping.com is pulled from the Goldsboro police records management system every twenty-four hours so the data being viewed is typically up-to-date. ESRI technology is being used to locate each event before it is posted at the site which helps to insure data integrity and accuracy. The Omega Group has been helping law enforcement fight crime through the use of this technology since 1992.
“A well-informed public has always been an essential element in the City of Goldsboro’s fight against crime and CrimeMapping.com is an excellent communication channel between the police department and Goldsboro’s citizens.”
Chief Tim Bell, Goldsboro Police Department, North Carolina
