Since moving back to the neighborhood of my youth, right across the street from my parents but that’s a completely different story, back in August of 2006 we have been active members of Toledo Neighborhood Block Watch. We immediately realized the value of our CSO presenting the crime stats but, since we are both visual learners and not geography Majors, we were often confused by the locations in even our relatively small are with less than a page of incidents. For this reason, we have been asking for a visual translation of the crime stats for nearly 8 years but were often told that it would not be good to make them public since it may tip off the criminals but all that has now changed.
Since the new crime map is Flash based, it may not be accessible on mobile devices but a simple conversion should be able to solve that problem very soon. Read all about it in this Toledo Free Press article by Sarah Ottney | Managing Editor!
