Southwest Regional Police Department release crime map to public
The Southwest Regional Police Department and BAIR Analytics Inc. recently partnered to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in their jurisdiction. The Southwest Regional Police Department now has an online crime map called RAIDS Online (www.raidsonline.com) that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Belle Vernon, Newell, Long Branch, Coal Center, Bentleyville, Cokeburg, Union Township, Perry Township and Wayne Township citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the Southwest Regional Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
Citizens in Southwest Regional Police jurisdiction can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity, and submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to their law enforcement agency. RAIDS Online automatically syncs with the Southwest Regional Police Department’s records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app. RAIDS Online cleans and geocodes the crime data, then displays all of the incidents on a map, grid and analytics dashboard along with some basic information about the incidents, including the type of crime, location type, block-level address, date and time.
“The Southwest Regional Police Department’s participation in RAIDS Online highlights their commitment to proactive communication with the public they serve,” said Sean Bair, founder of BAIR Analytics, “We’re excited to partner with the Southwest Regional Police Department to provide this free service for their public.”
