Online Map Allows Prosser Citizens to Track Crime

Posted: Updated:

PROSSER, WA. - Citizens living in Prosser now have a new way to stay informed about crime in the area.

The department and BAIR Analytics Inc. recently partnered to provide a new online map called RAIDS Online. It maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Prosser citizens about crime in the area, and allows the Prosser Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur. To visit the map, click here.

Prosser citizens can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity, and submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to their law enforcement agency.

RAIDS Online automatically syncs with the Prosser Police Department's records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app. RAIDS Online cleans and geocodes the crime data, then displays all of the incidents on a map, grid and analytics dashboard along with some basic information about the incidents, including the type of crime, location type, block-level address, date and time.

"The Prosser Police Department's participation in RAIDS Online highlights their commitment to proactive communication with the public they serve," said Sean Bair, founder of BAIR Analytics, "We're excited to partner with the Prosser Police Department to provide this free service for their public."

Customers can also download the RAIDS Online Mobile app. It's available for free on the App Store.
