Crime mapping allows Piedmont residents to track crime trends in the community

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Keeping your neighborhood safe is a community effort and police say you can’t rely solely on them to do the job.

Law enforcement agencies across the Piedmont are using technology to help residents know what’s going on around their homes.

Crime mapping is a tool to keep tabs on where crime occurs in the community. Many people use it to be proactive and as a way to form partnerships with law enforcement.

Parents can also use it to know where they can let their children play. Crimemapping.com allows you to track crime trends and forecasts.

There are two other websites you can use to keep track of crime in Winston-Salem and other cities. One is Raidsonline.com and the other is Neighborhoodscout.com.
