The comprehensive database of over 33 million incidents has added over 575,000 reports from the Milwaukee Police Department.

Busted! Crime Maps helps residents stay informed about public safety issues in their neighborhoods. The tool allows residents to monitor and view reported police incidents in 17 categories including theft, drugs, sex crimes, and traffic by date and location. Busted! Crime Maps currently gives residents in 27 states access to detailed crime incident reports broken down by city, state, and address.

According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report data, crime rates in Milwaukee from 2000 to the present show no major changes despite an FBI audit done last year that found the violent crime rate to be 10% higher than what was previously reported for several years. An internal police audit, prompted by the Journal Sentinel’ s investigation, found more than 5,300 violent assaults were underreported during the past six years. Since the findings in the audit, the city of Milwaukee has updated it’s crime rates have to reflect accurate numbers and these crime rates can now be found on Busted! Crime Maps.
