Frisco Police Department launches new crime map

1

The Frisco Police Department announced Feb. 7 the launch of the Crime Mapping Dashboard, a new system that helps Frisco residents track crime reports in their neighborhoods. This system is separate from the coyote map the police department launched in January.

The crime mapping system, created by the city of Frisco’s information technology team, provides residents with an interactive experience that displays crimes and crime trends throughout the city. The map can be found at www.friscopd.com/crime.

The map features different icons for different types of crimes as well as when and where the crimes were committed.

All of the information available in the new system is updated nightly and covers the most recent 30-day time frame, according to a city press release.

“The Frisco Police Department is committed to using technology as another layer of transparency, public access and community engagement with our citizens and business owners,” Deputy Chief Jason Jenkins said in a statement. “It is our hope that the Crime Mapping Dashboard will provide a geographical view of police-related activity to better inform our citizens, which will ultimately lead to a reduction in crime.”

The dashboard is only accessible through the website at this time and is not yet available for smartphones. However, a mobile app is currently being designed.

  1. Only issue is that it is not supported on mobile devices.. This needs to be adjusted to work on mobile devices.
