Darlington County Sheriff’s Office releases crime map to public
Darlington County Sheriff Tony Chavis has announced that the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Southern Software, the records management software provider for the Sheriff’s Office, and LexisNexis Risk Solutions to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Darlington County.
The Darlington County Sheriff’s Office now has an online map called Community Crime Map that analyzes crime data, alerts citizens about crimes in their area and allows the Sheriff’s Office to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
“People throughout Darlington County told me during the campaign they wanted to be kept informed and I promised to do that,” said Chavis. “This is another way your Sheriff’s Office will keep everyone informed about what is happening in our communities.”
Darlington County citizens can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent criminal activity, and submit anonymous tips about crime directly to the Sheriff’s Office. Community Crime Map automatically syncs with the Sheriff’s Office’s records management system to keep crime information updated online. Community Crime Map cleans and geocodes the crime data, then displays all of the incidents on a map, grid and analytics dashboard along with some basic information about the incidents, including the type of crime, a general locations, date and time.
This Community Crime Map is being provided at no additional cost to Darlington County and the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office is the only law enforcement agency within Darlington County currently providing this service through LexisNexis. Community Crime Map is ad-free and LexisNexis Risk Solutions does not sell the data to third party vendors. To use the Community Crime Map, visit communitycrimemap.com.
