Congrats to DeKalb for Updated Police Website

Congratulations to Ms. Keisha Williams, Assistant Director of Community, Media & Administrative Affairs of the DeKalb County Police Department for implementing a complete overhaul of the Department's website. The site is now clean, usable and includes interesting historical information.

The only suggestion I could make is that it is missing a web based interactive crime statistics tool which would assist county residents in participating fully in Interactive Community Policing.

The City of Chicago Police Department also implemented Interactive Community Policing and they introduced the ClearMaping system as a way to inform residents of what happens around them.

I hope that DeKalb is looking at such a tool.

In the meantime, you can sign up for email alerts regarding criminal arrests in your zip code (and others) by going to http://www.scandekalb.com/CommunityWatch.html
It's a terrific service, where you can stream police scanners or donate to the bullet proof vest fund.

Thanks Susan for the reminder, I get an e-mail almost every day from the Community Watch.
