The City of Bellevue Police Department is using a new CRIME MAP. The Bellevue police have said that this is an effort to "proactively share information with the public." Users can also select crime types, date ranges, generate reports, and receive email updates as well as free crime alerts.
The Bellevue Police Department now provides a new level of transparency for the 140,000 residents of Bellevue, WA. Crime Prevention detectives can use the map at community meetings to provide reliable crime information and encourage citizens to report offenses. This tactic has been proven effective in reducing crime in other local communities by increasing the number of eyes and ears that are aware of local activity.
The use of this tool by the Bellevue Police Department is sure to increase the awareness of Bellevue residents and likely to increase the amount of crime reporting that occurs in Bellevue.
In the first week of May, 2015 the City of Bellevue had 31 crimes reported. The most common crimes in Bellevue were: Shoplifting, Theft, Burglary, Assault, DUI and theft of a motor vehicle.
