The Princeton Police Department and Behavioral Analysis and Intelligence Resources (BAIR) Analytics, a LexisNexis company, recently partnered to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Princeton. The Princeton Police Department now has an online crime map called RAIDS Online that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Princeton residents about crimes in their area, and allows the Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
Princeton Residents can view a map and grid with all of the crimes 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.
How It Works
RAIDS Online automatically syncs with the Princeton Police Department records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app. RAIDS Online cleans and geocodes the crime data, then displays all of the incidents on a map, grid, and analytics dashboard along with some basic information about the incidents, including the:
- Block‐level address
- Location type
- Type of crime
