[ARCHIVED] Scott County Sheriff’s Office Releases Crime Map to Public

LexisNexis Crime Mapping

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office now provides a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Scott County. “This new crime map enables citizens to see crime activity in their own neighborhoods or throughout the county,” said Scott County Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “By providing our county with this crime map, we’re hoping the information we have on current crime activity will empower our citizens to better understand and hopefully take relevant actions to prevent crime activity in their neighborhood.”

Scott County citizens can view a map and grid with incidents in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports, and submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to their law enforcement agency. The new map is called Community Crime Map and automatically syncs with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office’s records system to keep crime information updated online. Community Crime Map displays incidents on a map, grid and analytics dashboard along with some basic information about the incidents, including the type of crime, location, date and time.

“In order to protect citizens’ privacy,” said Sheriff Hennen, “Community Crime Map will not include incidents with private or confidential data but will show incidents that matter the most to our citizens.”
