Citizen Services Program website services
1. Crime Maps and Statistics
The Citizen Services Program website includes information such as crime maps and statistics. The interactive crime map provides details about where certain crimes occurred. The maps are updated on a weekly basis.
Pins are marked to show what crime was committed and at what time. The pins are based on an approximate location. Additionally, it provides a case number to go with each pin and the ability to leave an anonymous tip.
Some examples of pins dropped include burglaries, trespassing, drug abuse, vandalism, sudden deaths, disorderly conduct, robbery, possession of weapons, fraud, accidents, and more. These categories can be custom-selected so that citizens are able to view only the categories they are searching to simplify the map.
In addition to the map, a comprehensive report about crimes is provided. The Racine City Police Department’s CompStat Management Report is also updated and gives a report weekly. The report compares crime statistics from this year to years past and is available for viewing 24/7 through the Citizen Services Program.
