Arcadia, CA – The Arcadia Police Department announced that is has launched its latest crime fighting tool called Crime Mapping available on the police department web site. At Tuesday night’s City Council meeting Chief Robert Sanderson along with Lieutenant Bob Anderson unveiled the latest tool in a series of cyber outreaches to the community. Crime Mapping is an interactive web site that displays criminal information that the public can personalize to their neighborhood.

In addition to Crime Mapping, the police department has recently taken steps to strengthen policing efforts through the use of various on-line and social networking sites. The police department has created a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and the Arcadia Police Department News & Information Blog, all of which allow the community to remain informed and interact with the police department.

Additionally, in an effort to keep our community informed the Arcadia Police Department has also partnered with Nixle, which is an Arcadia community wire which allows our personnel to broadcast emergency alerts, pertinent information, and community notifications to our subscribers.

“Each of these services is designed to enhance the ability of our community to interact with the members of our police department on a level never experienced before,” Chief Sanderson says.
