Police add new online tool to view crime activity

GREENVILLE - The City of Greenville is the latest Northeast Texas entity to begin offering crime activity online through a mapping application at www.crimereports.com.

In a release by the city, they note that the site is part of ongoing efforts to improve service to the community.

Citizens may access the crime map 24-hours a day, through either the website or through the CrimeReports iPhone application, available for free from the Apple iTunes store. The service also allows citizens to sign up for customizable email alerts and to submit anonymous crime tips.

The new service gives residents and business owners the ability to review and understand crime trends in their area and to help them improve the safety of their neighborhoods and community.

A brief video tutorial by Officer Chris McCaslin is available on the City’s website explaining how to use the CrimeReports.com program.

With this new tool, the City of Greenville is once again utilizing technology in streamlining its administrative processes, and providing services to citizens in the most efficient and cost effective way possible.

The Paris Police Department also provides crime activity through the site.

Other recent improvements in Greenville include the ability to download accident reports, pay municipal court fines and register for recreation and sports activities.
