LAPD Crime Tracking Map

The LA Times is reporting that the Los Angeles Police Department has released an online crime tracking map that allows citizens to monitor and track crime patterns in LA.

From the article by Richard Winton —

The LAPD’s interactive crime mapping, which went up on the department’s website late Wednesday, allows users to pinpoint by date and location specific crimes, including robbery, assault, rape and homicide, up to five miles from their own addresses — or anybody else’s.

Users can access the crime maps and stats from the LAPD website @ LAPD Online.
