(February 7, 2019) The Frisco Police Department is excited to announce the launch of the new Crime Mapping Dashboard created by the City of Frisco Information Technology GIS Team. This crime mapping system provides citizens with an interactive online experience that displays crimes and crime trends throughout the city using multiple interactive visual elements (including maps, charts, and filters).
All information available on the Crime Mapping Dashboard is updated nightly and covers the most recent 30-day time frame. For the safety of the public, residential calls are not displayed over the exact location of the incident but rather over the nearest block.
“I would like to thank the City of Frisco Information Technology GIS team for their hard work on this important project. The Frisco Police Department is committed to using technology as another layer of transparency, public access and community engagement with our citizens and business owners. It is our hope that the Crime Mapping Dashboard will provide a geographical view of police-related activity to better inform our citizens, which will ultimately lead to a reduction in crime,” said Deputy Chief Jason Jenkins of the Frisco Police Department.
The dashboard is accessible to the public through www.friscopd.com/crime, but is not yet available for smartphone use. However, a more mobile friendly Crime Mapping Web application is currently in design.
As always, for details regarding specific incidents, please use our Public Information Act Request at www.friscopd.com/policepir.
