For Immediate Release

Crime Map Now Lets Users Post a Tip Online

Since the recent transition to Niche software, several updates have occurred to the application so it would publish crime data directly to our crime reports map located on our website. The information is now current and has an added feature called "Tipsoft" where a crime can be reviewed and the user will be given the option to post a tip directly related to that crime.

The SPD encourages anyone who has knowledge of a specific crime to take advantage of this easy to use software, which could assist law enforcement in locating and capturing a criminal.
