Introducing Crime Mapping

Community Engagement has always been important to the Wilmington Police Department‘s (WPD) endeavors, but now they’re taking it a step further by introducing an interactive crime mapping tool to keep the community informed of what’s going on around them. This past week, mayor Mike Purzycki alongside Police Chief Robert Tracy, unveiled a new web resource and phone application for Wilmington, DE residents with the app titled CrimeMapping.com or “Crime Mapping” in the app store.

The Mayor and Chief said the site/app will augment the City’s current efforts to keep the public informed and engaged in creating a safer City through the current Compstat online reports, which were made available to citizens beginning in February at bit.ly/WilmDECompStat.

How it Works

The tool will give citizens a greater understanding of what’s happening in their neighborhoods and throughout the City. They also said the new online information will further the department’s efforts to be more transparent and accountable to citizens.

The new crime mapping service is a web-based program developed by TriTech Software Systems to help law enforcement agencies provide the community with valuable information about recent crime activity in and around their neighborhoods. The Wilmington Police Department (WPD) is paying TriTech a nominal fee to enable Wilmington citizens to participate in the new online program.

The data for the Wilmington-specific portion of www.CrimeMapping.com is extracted from the WPD’s records system on a regular basis, allowing citizens to view up to six months of crime data, or up to 1,000 records by various search categories. These include a date range, crime type, or distance of an incident from a specific address. The data is illustrated on a map and the various crimes are shown as icons, each containing general details of the incident.

Other Resources

The site also provides links to other useful crime prevention resources such as the WPD’s Facebook page and website and Delaware Crime Stoppers. Chief Tracy said the new website service will also send custom alerts to citizens about updated crime data, letting citizens define what type of crime information they want to receive.
