Hello!

I have decided to post some useful online tools anyone can use, wether looking for hotbed areas to patrol, or if you foolishly decide to run off into danger, these tools are great for both of those purposes!

LINKS:

1) http://spotcrime.com - great to see what crimes have happened in your area in the past few months
NOTE: only displays publicly reported and sourced items, use only as reference not a strict guide

http://www.crimemapping.com/ is another great source

2) http://www.familywatchdog.us/
List of known sex offenders in your area (self explanatory)

3) http://www.usacops.com/
This lists your nearest law enforcement agency

TOOLS:

1) http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/police-scanner/id353242187?mt=8
Police and emergency scanner app for Iphone and ipod - Use cautiously, but will provide live emergency feeds.

2) https://market.android.com/details?id=com.berobo.android.scanner&hl=en
Pretty much the same as number 1 but for android

3) http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/inrix-traffic-get-there-faster/id324384027?mt=8
Traffic app for Iphone - best way to avoid deadlocks and the like. Android has it built in by the way Wink


So there you have it! A few useful tools to help you spot criminal hotspots in your area and keep a heads up on whats in your area at all times! Use at your own risk Smile

Lynx,

I think the way SpotCrime works, is that the people who run the website add the content there, based on what they see either in the news or by reading the reports that the police make.

Newspapers are also good sources, along with the TV news and Internet.

Yes, that, and if you wrote down what the TV people said, it wouldn't take too much paper at all, it's mainly the video that's the plus side of it. It's good to have a balance.

And it's always good to keep a mental note of these reports. Patterns will begin to form in your minds, and also talking with people in the area you patrol is also helpful too. You can talk with them about the crime that goes on there, especially stuff you've heard about in the news, and see what they can tell you about that.

Get to know the place you are patroling I cover the whole down town area of Iqaluit and some of the up town parts too for both patroling and snow clearing I know where I can go to get somewhere in a hurry if say I was up town and I looked down the hill to see a child being picked on by another person or about to get hit by a car comming around the bend in the road I also know where I can get to planned escape routes if I ever had to because my own life was in danger

and I know where I can bring the kids to be away from that danger I know the quickest route home in the event of an incomming storm or blizzard and where I can duck inside if I cant get home ahead of the storm
