Online crime reports keep you informed about crimes in and around your neighborhood and work as a partnership between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve.
Most crime report websites allow you to sign up for customizable email or text message alerts and will send you a mix of crime notifications, sex-offender registry updates, and general public safety announcements as they happen. Some crime reports will also allow you to sign up for multiple locations so you can receive notifications about crimes in your parents’ neighborhood or in your child’s college town.
Alternatively, you can also enter your zip code or full address to instantly access city and county crime maps showing crime incident data down to activities in your area.
