Crimedar Map
The Birmingham Police Department uses CRIMEDAR, an online crime mapping system. The tool allows the media and residents alike to view and track crime reports affecting residents within Birmingham. By accessing, viewers can see the date, time, location and description of a particular incident. The CRIMEDAR site features a Google map with icons depicting various types of crimes. With a simple click of the mouse, anyone can see a brief summary of the incident. Crime icons remain on the map for two weeks, and then are saved in an archived area. Residents are encouraged to visit the site frequently and submit tips or any information they may have regarding the incidents.
