Crime Prevention Information at your Fingertips

From our SE Crime Prevention Coordinators at the Portland Police Bureau:

We are actually lucky in Portland to have many of our crime statistics dropping each year. Part of that decrease is due to neighbors getting involved in block watches, foot patrols and being aware of and reporting suspicious activity in their communities.

If you are interested in the crime statistics for your community, the Portland Police website has some links to several sites that you can browse.

CrimeMapper2 includes the last year of data and is updated monthly. There are 28 crime categories that you can search, which is helpful if there is a specific crime that you are interested in seeing the results for. CrimeMapper searches by street address or intersection. You can also sign up for a monthly email notification that is sent to you. CrimeMapper will create a map for you similar to the maps that you see at your neighborhood or business association meetings. The link to CrimeMapper is Continue reading “Crime Prevention Information at your Fingertips”
