MILTON, Ga. – Did you know that since 2010, the Milton Police Department has partnered with CrimeReports.com to bring online crime data and mapping to its citizens?

To use the service, check the city's website, www.cityofmiltonga.us, 24 hours a day. It is free to the public and allows citizens to view data online and receive alerts about activity near their work, home or school.

Here's how it works: While on the Crimereports.com site, type in an address to pull up a map of the city. The system will then populate the map with crimes or police activity that has occurred in the selected time frame. The user can then click on the legend to get a brief description of the listed activity.

In addition to keeping citizens informed, CrimeReports.com allows the police department to analyze incident data – meaning more effective crime fighting and more efficient response to the needs of the community.

"This is a great tool," said Milton Police Chief Deborah Harrell. "I am pleased to be able to quickly get crime information out to the citizens of Milton through CrimeReports.com."
