CRIME MAP for Granite Falls and surrounding area.  It’s important to understand how the crime mapping tool is used.

The crime map shows only certain tycrime mappes of crimes when the case has been CLOSED.  For example, a law enforcement officer may respond to 10 calls on a shift.  Of those, perhaps 3 may be non-criminal, 3 may be crimes that are not reported to the crime mapping tool (such as cases involving children, or sexual assault), and of the remaining 4, perhaps 2 are open cases, which are also not reported.  That leaves 2 cases that fall into the specified crimes shown on the crime map, and that the officer was able to open and close, either that same day or later.

Once at the site, you can choose to see reports for particular time periods, as well as neighborhood locations.  The map has a tool to zoom in and out.  You can also filter the report by type of crime, and subscribe for updates in your email.   Click here to access the Crime Map.
