Have you ever seen flashing red lights in your neighborhood and wanted to know what was going on? Are you interested in becoming involved in preventing neighborhood crime? Now you can, through a new partnership between the Bellaire Police Department and CrimeReports, creators of the National Crime Map, at www.CrimeReports.com.
“Providing reliable, timely information to our citizens is one of our top priorities,” said Police Chief Randall Mack. “And partnering with CrimeReports gives us the ability to keep the public informed on a regular basis as to what is going on in the community.”
The public can access the crime map 24 hours a day through the website or through the CrimeReports iPhone app, available for free download in the Apple iTunes store. The new service even lets local citizens sign up for free customizable email alerts, so they can stay on top of crime in their neighborhood. The police department hopes that giving the community this information will create awareness and help prevent crime in their neighborhoods by keeping residents informed.
The Bellaire Police Department is joining a list of nearly 800 other law enforcement agencies of all sizes across North America who are sharing their crime information with the public through the map, like Baltimore, Boston, San Jose, San Francisco, Portland, Washington D.C., Los Angeles County, Friendswood, Webster and more.
