The City of Danville Police Department, in conjunction with the city’s IT Department, have launched a new GIS Community Crime Mapping Application. The application provides a publicly available visual element to the City’s crime data by mapping the eight Part I Offenses, as defined by the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, by year and police beat/sub-beat. The ultimate goal is to increase resident awareness of common problems within neighborhoods and open up discussion on how residents can help reduce long term crime patterns through networking strategies such as participation in neighborhood crime watch programs and communicating regularly with Danville PD crime prevention and street crimes officers.
