Long Beach police launch new app that allows tracking of neighborhood crime

A new mapping application allows anyone with a computer to get a snapshot of the number and types of crime in their neighborhood or anywhere else in the city.

Developed with the help of the Long Beach Technology and Innovation Department and the supplier ArcGIS, the interactive map uses the last six months of data obtained from the police department’s Records Management System to show all of the reported crime incidents. A test showed there is information as recent as the week before in the system.
