Seattle Police Reports Online
Did you know that you can view incident reports from the Seattle Police Department online? SPD started making its reports available online earlier this year. Go to http://www.seattle.gov/police/records/online.htm and create a login, then browse the reports. This could be a useful tool for block watch groups.
You can also access the reports by starting from the City’s neighborhood map portal http://web5.seattle.gov/mnm/policereports.aspx This view gives you a picture of activity in a geographic area. (It takes a while to load the data as graphics on the map, so be patient.)
