Crime data is highly sought after information.
Everyone wants to know what crime is like in any given area. As REALTORS®, we’re asked about crime all the time in any given neighborhood. Since we’re not a crime experts, we typically refer our clients to the City Of San Antonio Police Department Crime Data website and from there they can sort through the various data and statistics to figure out what they like or don’t like about a neighborhood.
Unfortunately, most police departments are too busy working on solving and stopping crime to be worried about clean user interfaces and aesthetics in their crime data (although San Antonio has made great strides in making the data more accessible). Enter CrimeReports.com. Using a familiar and simple interface, CrimeReports allows the user to enter the name of the city and bring up a Google Map with an overlay of crime data in that area. With easy to locate icons reporting various types of crime, users can quickly and easily see what’s happening in a given area.
The site also allows you to search through sex offender registries, combining both crime data and sex offender registration sites into one easy to access source.
