Crime Maps

BAIR’s public crime map, RAIDS Online, connects law enforcement with the community in effort to reduce crime and improve public safety. Crime mapping helps the public get a better idea of the crime activity in their area so they can make more informed decisions about how to stay safe.

RAIDS Online goes beyond crime mapping by automatically alerting the public about recent crime activity and by improving communication between the public and law enforcement through anonymous tips. RAIDS Online empowers the public to make better decisions about crime by putting the same technology used by law enforcement to analyze and interpret crime activity into the hands of the public.

RAIDS Online allows for address searching, date range filters and 27 crime categories that make it easy for the public to view the crime information that matters to them most.

RAIDS Online can provide automated neighborhood watch emails that keep the public up-to-date on recent crime activity near their home, school or other place of interest.
