Duncanville residents will now be able to utilize a crime mapping tool to be more informed about reported crime within the City of Duncanville. This tool, CrimeMapping.com, interfaces with the Duncanville Police Department’s Records Management System (RMS) to map, list and chart general crime as reported. The Duncanville Police Department is excited to announce this tool to its citizens as a means to enhance their ability to access general crime data efficiently. Although this tool is anticipated to allow for more information-sharing about generalized crime to our citizens, it does not provide sensitive information about each reported crime due to victims’ privacy issues as well as issues pertaining to investigation integrity.
CrimeMapping.com can be accessed from any computer or mobile device either directly at www.CrimeMapping.com, or via a link on the City of Duncanville’s website. The desired data of each individual, based on his/her parameters, includes sharp map visuals and icons which clearly depict reported crimes in areas of interest (work, home, schools or daycare facilities).
The www.CrimeMapping.com website also allows users the ability to set individualized crime alerts around specific addresses by setting up automatic notifications pertinent to the area and/or reported crime(s) selected. A short instructional video, which can be found towards the bottom of the homepage at www.CrimeMapping.com, provides a detailed overview of the site’s features.
