The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office has launched a renewed effort to share accurate and timely data with the public by partnering with CrimeMapping.com, an interactive website that maps crime in our communities.

Using information provided by the Sheriff’s Office and new mapping technology, crime data is provided in Google Maps.

Data covers the past 90 days and is generally available within 24 hours of a crime being committed.

Citizens can sort data by crime type, location, and date range, generate reports and subscribe to the system to receive automatic e-mail updates.

CrimeMapping is also available for the iPhone.

“CrimeMapping is a tool that allows our community to see what is going on every day in their neighborhood,” said Sheriff John Lovick. “A well-informed public ensures safer communities.”

Data will be available for all jurisdictions that are covered by the Sheriff’s Office, including unincorporated Snohomish County, Gold Bar, Darrington, Snohomish, Stanwood, Sultan, and  Index.
