Residents Can Track Crime With New Online Program
The Gainesville Police Department is teaming up with five other agencies in Alachua County to start up a new online program that tells you where crimes in our area are happening.
TV20 first told you about the new program in March called, Crime Report. It's a new website designed to point out various crimes throughout the county. Anyone can click to see where and when crimes happened. The system updates every night and you can search for crimes dating back to two years. The online database can also locate sex offenders.
"Each of those law enforcement agencies is now on board and there's one uniform easy to use, quickly updated, rapidly updated form of venue for you as a citizen or the media to track crimes in your community," Alachua County Sheriff's Office Deputy Lt. Steve Maynard said.
You can access the site by logging onto to GPD's main webpage at gainesvillepd.org.
Officials say the program is funded through forfeiture money and private donors.
