Neighborhood Crime Mapping
Free internet crime mapping service is available through crimereports.com which lets you see police activity that has occurred in the City on an easy to use Google-style map. You can enter a specific address and see what crime has happened in the vicinity of your neighborhood, or you can pan the map to see activity City-wide.
Get started by following these instructions:
- Go to www.crimereports.com
- Enter address in search box
- Pick desired date range using calendar feature
- Select crime types to be displayed
- Click on each symbol to learn more about the incident
Each item shown on the map includes basic data about the activity - what the activity was; what day and time it happened; where it happened; and its case identifier. With the case identifier from the map, further information about the case can then be requested by asking for a copy of the police report.
If you like, you can sign up to get automatic email notifications any time certain types of crimes happen within a specified distance from your home or business.
This is a free service. No fee is charged to access the site or use the tools. Olympia's law enforcement records partners - Lacey, Tumwater and Yelm - are also participants in the service.
