The Sausalito Police Department has implemented a great online program where you can see all police activities over the last 3, 7, 14 or 30 days displayed on a map. Any burglaries or stolen cars in your neighborhood? That was the first thing we looked for on the system! Now you can check it out for your place.
The map is updated about once a day. Buttons on the screen allow you to sort for date, crime type, distance from an arbitrary spot in the center of the city. Incidents are listed in a column on the left and appear as icons on the map. Clicking on an icon opens a window with additional data.
Bravo to the Sausalito Police Dept. and the City for using technology to share this information so efficiently with the public.
