Citizens of Port Angeles and the surrounding community can find out what crimes are being committed in their neighborhood, city, and county through a free interactive website, CrimeReports.
Currently working with over 1,500 participating law enforcement agencies, CrimeReports is the largest public crime-mapping and citizen tip network serving those who live in North America.
A special crime map shows what crimes have been reported and where they're happening, 24 hours every day. The Port Angeles and Sequim Police Departments and the Clallam County Sheriff's Office are all participating in the program that includes law enforcement agencies in the United States and Canada.
Citizens can access local crime maps and sign up for daily, weekly, or monthly crime alerts. They can also anonymously report informational tips to local law enforcement agencies who are participating in the electronic crime prevention partnership.
The Port Angeles Police Department and other local public safety agencies are pleased to be able to share up-to-date neighborhood crime data with the citizens that they serve.
The program will provide vital information in a timely manner to residents and businesses in order to help them make informed decisions that will increase their personal safety and the safety of their neighborhood and community.
