“It’s going to be literally a one-stop-shop for our citizens,” Harmon said. “If you want to report a crime anonymously–hit that button. If you want to see what community events are coming up–hit that button.”

The site will also feature a call list,” Harmon said.

“It’s as close to real time as possible. It’s updated every 24 hours. You see call logs in the paper but I wanted more than that,” Harmon said.

The call list is connected to an interactive map that shows the type of call, where it was (as close as necessary to protect one’s confidentiality) and heat mapping to show saturation areas.

Harmon said the map provide information to citizens that has previously more difficult to get to.

“Where are we at with destruction of property? Sexual assaults? Burglaries or larcenies? Literally the citizens will have that now at their fingerprints by bringing up the interactive map,” Harmon said.

To access the interactive map, go to and follow the public safety link to set up an account.
