San Rafael PD Partners with BAIR Analytics Inc for Public Crime Mapping
The San Rafael Police Department (SRPD) in northern Californina has partnered with BAIR Analytics Inc, a LexisNexis® Company, to provide public crime mapping to their public through RAIDS Online. RAIDS Online makes it easier for San Rafael residents to keep track of crime in their area. BAIR offers RAIDS Online as a free service to any law enforcement agency who wishes to participate.
RAIDS Online syncs with SRPD’s crime records system to automatically upload crime information and keep it updated on the map. Residents can view crimes near their home, school, work or other area of interest. In addition to a map of crime, RAIDS Online allows citizens to sign up for email reports of recent crime activity. The reports list each crime within a certain distance from the user’s address for the past day or week. A sign up form on the RAIDS Online website makes it easy for residents to sign up for reports.
“LexisNexis is delivering the BAIR Analytics RAIDS Online solution to help public safety officers make better decisions to close cases faster and improve community safety,” said Haywood Talcove, chief executive officer, LexisNexis Special Services, Inc. “We are committed to fostering regional data sharing, analysis and community policing capabilities by providing this valuable service at no charge. The citizens of Marin County will be more informed and prepared with RAIDS Online.”
