Find out what crimes have occurred in your neighborhoodby Mark B. Evans on Jul. 14, 2010, under New Features
We added a new feature to the site today, CrimeReports.com. The widget is at the bottom of the home page and maps crime reports submitted to the company by the Pima County Sheriff’s Office and the Tucson, Oro Valley, Marana, Sahuarita and Tohono O’odham police departments.
The database is searchable by address, by crime type and by age – three days, one week, two weeks or one month.
You can use this data simply for curiosity – find out what’s going on in your neighborhood. But it can be a useful tool for home buyers, Realtors, people thinking about switching apartments, especially UA students, Neighborhood Watch committees, home owners associations and anyone who needs reminding to keep their cars and homes locked.
Check it out and let us know what you think.
