Fairfax County Police Have New Crime Reporting Tool

Fairfax County Police The Fairfax County Police have a new tool to help residents stay aware of and report crime in the community.

FCPD has teamed with CrimeReports.com, an online mapping and analysis service provided by Public Engines, Inc., for the improved system.

CrimeReports.com combines the value of police data with the ease-of-use of Google-based mapping and an analytics module so that members of the public can view police data in a high-impact map and summary format, FCPD says.

Says FCPD:

CrimeReports.com provides a convenient, web-based platform that will allow us to proactively share local, police related information with the community.

Events reported to the Fairfax County Police Department and stored in our I/LEADS records management system are automatically published in an interactive map that is free and accessible to the public on desktop or mobile device.

For over 10 years, the police department has published calls for service data through the “My Neighborhood” application available on the Fairfax County website. The new CrimeReports.com experience will now provide residents with the opportunity to view police activity at their leisure, to sign up for updates, and to instantly send secure, anonymous tips to the Fairfax County Crime Solvers network.

Functions that are currently accessed on Fairfax County’s My Neighborhood site will remain available to the public, but will now include a redirect to CrimeReports.com.

To check out Crimereports.com, visit the site and type in a Fairfax County address. FCPD also has a Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
