Oakland Police Launch CyberWatch™

Rate This Article
July 10, 2007 -- Oakland Police Department in California recently launched their CrimeView Community® application with a new feature.  CyberWatch™ is a Web based public service tool. It allows members of the general public to receive information about recent incident activity in any area through their existing e-mail account. Here's how it works:

    1. Users sign up for the service online - the type of incidents can be specified as well as the address to search from. The search radius can range from 1/4 mile to 1 mile in distance.

    2. E-mails arrive - an e-mail alert is sent to the user anytime the specific incident or incidents requested have occurred in the search radius within the last 24 hours. If no incidents have occurred the e-mail is not sent.

Each e-mail alert contains a report outlining what type of incidents occurred as well as when and where they occured. The e-mail alert will also contain a link directly to the on-line mapping application (CrimeView® Community) that depicts the results of the requested query.

CyberWatch™ can be installed as added functionality within any existing CrimeView® Community application. CyberWatch™ can help neighbors look out for each other as well as aid in existing community oriented policing efforts.
