Franklin County Sheriff’s Office to Provide New Online Crime Mapping

BENTON – The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, in cooperation with CentralSquare Technologies, is offering a new crime mapping program to assist the public in being informed of crime activity in their neighborhood.

A better-informed citizenry creates more self-reliance among community members and is proven effective in combating crime.

CrimeMapping.com utilizes an advanced mapping engine to allow community members to view types of crime happening in their neighborhoods.

The sheriff’s office encourages residents to view crimemapping.com/map/agency/609, become informed and sign up for free e-mail alerts. Users of the webpage will also be able to link to other sites such as sex offender information and department media releases.
