What do you think of this site? CrimeReports.com
My first impression was "if there is good data, it could be a good site." It's objective, not someone's opinion of what neighborhood is safe or unsafe, it is crime reports, it's cold hard facts.
When you moved to a neighborhood in Central Ohio or elsewhere in the past how did you determine how safe a neighborhood is?
- Ask your real estate agent
- Ask the local police
- Ask friends or co-workers?
City of Columbus Police Department's Crime Map on the ColumbusPolice.org site? The map is NOW a link to a Columbus map on CrimeReports.com
When people ask "How SAFE is the neighborhood?" I used to refer people to the City Precinct Maps and Community Liason Contact Numbers, there were stats posted on the Columbus Police Department website in the past, but not for a long time.
Do you see crime close to your home that you weren't aware of? How safe is your Central Ohio Columbus neighborhood according to this site?
The City of Columbus must be providing the site their crime reports. Are the Columbus suburbs supplying their crime reports to the CrimeReport.com site? I was using a suburban address earlier today and was struck by all the crime it showed was in surrounding Columbus neighborhoods, but none in the suburb. Then it sunk in ALL the crime reports were in the City of Columbus. I don't believe that particular suburban communities crime reports are supplied to the CrimeReport.com site.
I’ve been playing with the CrimeReports.com site a little bit for Central Ohio addresses. Thanks to Lanette Branch a Re/Max agent from Bel Air Maryland for mentioning the site via ActiveRain.
