Last week, the Eagan Police Department released a new, more sophisticated interactive map.
Like previous iterations of the map, the system (known as “RAIDS Online") allows citizens to see geographic distribution of crime and public safety incidents. However there are a number of new features that allow the public to better analyze crime data, such as tabs that overlay demographic information. RAIDS also promises to be more current: The system automatically syncs with the EPD’s records system.
The map also allows residents to report crimes directly through the site as they occur. If the incident is already on the map, click on the specific pinpoint. A short description will pop up, as well as a link at the bottom of the pop up box, which leads to an online reporting form.
Residents can also use the map interface to sign up for regular crime updates (there's a button up at the top right of the page). And yes, there is an app for that on iPhone as well.
