Information is updated every 24 hours, so the information citizens obtain is timely and accurate, not days or weeks old. The accurate information can then be seen in a variety of ways; through crime mapping and through analytics.
Crime mapping allows users to type in a specific address of interest within the jurisdiction of the City of Winchester’s Police Department (i.e. school, home, office), choose crime types, set dates or a variety of all three, and click “Get Report” to see them plotted on the map. The user can then click on each event plotted to gather more details about the incident that occurred, to include the case report number. The map can be manipulated to show a variety of views from street level or satellite views. The user can also pan and zoom to get varying viewpoints.
Analytics allows users to obtain statistics, track trends, and view graphs and charts for crimes in the City of Winchester. The graphs and charts come in handy for a variety of uses, to include presentations at Neighborhood Watch meetings.
