Hey, congrats to the St. Petersburg Police Department for making it to the 21st century!
Next month, Chief Chuck Harmon will officially unveil the SPPD’s participation in CrimeReports.com, a crime map tracking service for us common folk. For the very crime-conscious neighborhoods of St. Pete, this is fairly exciting. CrimeReports.com allows you to search your neighborhood for crimes, provides e-mail alerts and maps all the sexual predators throughout the city.
Best of all for reporters like me, this site can easily track crime trends in certain neighborhoods. Hey look! A homicide on the north side. I don’t remember hearing about that!
If you want to hear the official ra-ra over the site, Chief Harmon is leading a presentation at the Sunshine Center on Oct. 6 around 7 p.m.
