Dean Burridge dutifully sorts and reports crime for Faubourg St. John. He posts the text of each incident on the yahoo group. However, there is a service that takes these same crime reports and posts them on a map. Each incident is coded with a different icon. Click on the icon to find out more.
I like crimemapping.com because it gives me an instant picture of where crime is in relation to where I live. If you are interested in seeing a map of crimes in our area:
GO TO http://crimemapping.com
Look for the drop down menu that says “choose an agency”
Click on NEW ORLEANS POLICE
The crimemapping.com service will then bring you to a map of the crimes in New Orleans. Left click and hold on the map to move the map to your area.
