The Peters Township Police Department (PTPD) and LexisNexis Risk Solutions, recently partnered to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Peters Township. Peters Township now has an online crime map called Community Crime Map that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts our citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the PTPD to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
Citizens can view a map and grid with all of the crimes and incidents in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity, and submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to their law enforcement agency.
Tip: Once at the Community Crime Map, use the drop down menus on the left to customize dates, event (type of crimes), and various layers. The default settings are only for certain crimes within the past month. These settings and what you are viewing is all customizable by the user. For example, to see all crimes for a particular time range, click the Event drop down menu, and click Select All at the bottom of the crime list.
