Sadly, the world we live in is far from safe. Danger is something we have to take into account when we choose the neighborhoods we live in and the schools, parks and playgrounds we send our children to. But with Spot Crime, safety has never been easier!
With this Web site, you can see what kind of crimes have been committed in your area. At this time, there’s only information for the United States and London, UK, but that could all change as the site continues to grow.
Start by choosing your state. From there, select your city or the city closest to you. Once you’ve done that, it will generate a map of the area. The map key is right on top of the map and you can filter the results by removing the checkmarks next to each category.
The categories are: All, Arrest, Arson, Assault, Burglary, Other, Robbery, Shooting, Theft and Vandalism.
You can also type in your address to get even closer results in your neighborhood. I’m really hoping that over time, as the site grows, they will add more than just major cities.
I’d like to know what crimes are occurring back in my hometown where my parents live. I worry about their safety, as well as, mine. But, luckily, this Web site is a definite step in the right direction. Give it a try today!
