WATERVILLE, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Waterville police have given residents a new way to find out what types of crimes are happening in their area. The online tool will benefit the department and the community, by allowing residents to pinpoint activity.
The new program is called RAIDS Online, which stands for Regional Analysis and Information Sharing. Several departments around the country are already on board. The Waterville Police Department is the first to join in northwest Ohio.
"It gives people the ability to check their neighborhood, to check what's going on around them. Respective new residents who want to check and see what the city is like can see what type of activity we have out here," explained Police Chief David LaGrange.
All you have to do is go to the website, type in an address in Waterville and you can view crimes dating back to January 2013.
LaGrange says this feature will benefit more than the community.
"It gives the officers a quick check when they're going to an address on a call. It gives them a good chance to get a check on history," he explained.
The free pinpointing system has data on all sorts of crimes from robbery, to fraud, to drug violations. It also gives people the opportunity to send anonymous tips.
"This is just another way of getting information in that might solve a crime that otherwise might not get solved," said LaGrange.
Currently, this information is being uploaded manually, only taking a few minutes each day to keep the community informed.
