October 23, 2012
Busted! Grid the leading innovator in the aggregation of crime information, announces the beta release of BustedMaps.com. The tool currently provides residents in 19 states access to information about more than 16.5 million incidents, and can help users understand the public safety issues they face at the city, neighborhood, and street level. Additional cities and states will continue to be added as the information becomes available.
Busted! Maps is a distinctive resource that helps people easily evaluate neighborhoods with 17 searchable incident categories that include theft, violence, drug, accidents, and injury. The tool allows users to filter by incident type and date then search results by type of incident, zip code, or address. Currently, Busted! Maps provides information from cities in 19 states, with increases in incidents, states, and cities occurring daily.
“We are extremely excited about the Busted! Maps release because with the click of a button, users now have access to thousands of criminal incidents in their community,” says Kyle Prall, founder of BustedMugshots.com and BustedGrid.com. “BustedMaps.com is just one of the many BustedGrid.com resources that aim to improve resident’s understanding of local crime trends.”
Busted! Maps features include options for viewing current (within the past three months) or historic incidents (all data available), charts and graphs, and zooming functionality that allows users to understand where incidents are occurring down the block and in many cases a specific address.
Incident report data on Busted! Maps is gathered from local police databases to ensure accuracy, completeness, and consistency. Bustedmaps.com can be used as a reference for anyone who wants information about crime or traffic incidents in a city or neighborhood.
“People are concerned about crime and Busted! Grid aims to make the exchange of information between enforcement agencies and the public easier and faster.” says Prall.
