Have you ever seen flashing blue lights in your neighborhood and wanted to know what was going on? Do you want to find out how safe your neighborhood really is, or the neighborhood you are moving into? Now you can, through a partnership between the Corpus Christi Police Department and CrimeReports, creators of the National Crime Map, at www.CrimeReports.com.
“Providing reliable, timely information to our citizens is one of our top priorities,” says Capt. Ed Shannon. “And partnering with CrimeReports gives us the ability to keep the public informed on a regular basis as to what is going on in the community.” He added that the public can access the crime map 24 hours a day through the website or through the CrimeReports iPhone app, available for free download in the Apple iTunes store. The service even lets local citizens sign up for free customizable email alerts, so they can stay on top of crime in their neighborhood. “Information is power,” Capt. Shannon added, “and we hope that giving the community this information will help them prevent crime in their neighborhoods.”
“The Corpus Christi Police Department is a leader in law enforcement innovation,” says Greg Whisenant, founder and CEO of CrimeReports. “They are demonstrating their commitment to the community and to proactive policing.”
The Corpus Christi Police Department has joined a list of over 700 other law enforcement agencies of all sizes across North America who are sharing their crime information with the public through the map, like Baltimore, Boston, San Jose, San Francisco, Portland, Washington D.C., Los Angeles County, and more.
You can access your local crime map and sign up for daily, weekly, or monthly email crime alerts at www.CrimeReports.com.
