Interactive Public Safety Map Information #GVCopBeat

Posted on Updated on

The Grand Junction Police Department in conjunction with the City of Grand Junction Geographical Information System, GIS, recently revamped the Public Safety Map to reflect recent crime within City limits. The map is a resource for residents in the City of Grand Junction and those looking to move within City limits or open a business in Grand Junction. The map is an interactive resource that allows its user to research by a specific address or a broad area.

Citizens can check crimes for the area they wish to see for a wide range of dates,ranging from one month, six months and one year ago. In addition to checking recent crime, people can look for neighborhood watch areas and overlay the crimes for a certain area on the same map. This resource allows it’s user to see how crime rates differ from areas with neighborhood watch and without neighborhood watch.

The Public Safety Map focuses on crime awareness as well as prevention and reporting. For the most recent reported crime, there is an option to be redirected to the Crime Stoppers Web Tip page if the user has information about the crime.

Currently, only Grand Junction Police Department cases are posted to the Public Safety Map. While certain crimes, such as sex crimes, are redacted from the map to protect the victim’s privacy, the following crimes are featured on the map:
