“check your neighborhood and see if it is safe to go outside.”
Keeping score is now possible for Police. Statistics are kept for Traffic Cameras, Government Grant Applications, and to Justify or disprove profiling allegations. Our research has noted that the public information available from the crime mapping systems below is just the tip of the iceberg. Police agencies do not disclose statistics for some crimes while touting the numbers for others. For example, one local agency with a huge public relations nightmare for DUI enforcement, has chosen not to map DUI statistics see: Tampa http://raidsonline.com/?address=tampa,fl . Other agencies may not list certain crimes or activities for reasons unbeknownst to the public.
