The City has recently deployed its new crime mapping software program by Motorola. This data is compiled by the police department and conveniently displayed in map format. To go to the crime map, click here.
“Sharing this information on a map is a visual way to educate the public about where and why calls are being dispatched,” said acting City Manager Michael Mays. “The police department hopes the information will help residents be better informed about calls for service in their neighborhood.”
Instructions for use:
- From the dropdown menu, select “Explore Crime Map,” then click Go.
- On the left side of the page (above agencies) click filters. Choose the date range, and select all incidents or choose a specific call type.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “see results”.
Residents can also provide crime tips using the same system. To receive daily or weekly updates, residents can sign up here. This sends an interval summary of calls for the period and maps them for easy viewing. There is also an option for viewing local sex offenders, which can be found here.
“The system was installed at no additional cost to the City. I have been an advocate for this type of information to be available to our community,” said Mayor Kiernan McManus. “I appreciate the efforts of City Staff in making this happen. While Boulder City is the safest town in Nevada, the additional information will make our residents better informed and help identify any problems that do occur.”
