Crime Maps allows users to view updated crime activity anywhere in a police department’s jurisdiction with the new addition of satellite imagery. It is a part of a suite of applications created by ePolicing, a partnership of Los Angeles firms Lightray Productions and Psomas. ePolicing specializes in Web applications for police departments across the nation. Users are also no longer required to input a specific address to view the maps. They can simply drag and zoom into the area of the city they’re interested in to get more information. This marks ePolicing’s integration with the widely used Google Software, which will be available to all police departments using ePolicing services.
