Among many other features, SimpliCity provides crime statistics for the address. You can choose from several pre-selected date ranges and define the radius of your search parameter from an eighth of a mile to a mile. Crime information can be viewed on a map or in a data grid. Information provided is the type of crime, the date the crime occurred, the block-level address, and the incident number. The information can be downloaded into a .csv file. You can also search by neighborhood or along a street. Community Crime Map Community Crime Map allows users to choose a date range to view criminal activity (up to one year), select which crimes to view, and the opportunity to sign up for a neighborhood watch report that automatically generates an email breakdown of recent criminal activity specific to a particular area. The crime information can be viewed on a map or a data grid. Basic information about the incidents, such as the type of crime, location type, block-level address, and date and time, is also available.
