Crime has been developed by The Omega Group to help law enforcement agencies throughout North America provide the public with valuable information about recent crime activity in their neighborhood. Their goal is to assist police departments in reducing crime through a better-informed citizenry. Their theory is that creating more self-reliance among community members is a benefit to community oriented policing efforts everywhere and has been proven effective in combating crime.

Crime data is extracted on a regular basis from department’s records system so that the information being viewed through a Web browser is the most current available. This data is always verified for accuracy and all address information is generalized by block in order to help ensure privacy is protected.

It also comes as a mobile app.
