THUNDER BAY –
THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay Police Service have taken a step forward in communications. Today the TBPS has announced that they have put “crime mapping” online. This allows residents of the city to see where crimes are being committed around our community.
As the map shows, there are what appears a fair number of assaults, or multiple offenses committed across the city.
The computer allows you to see crimes over a three day, seven day, or thirty day period, or over a specific calendar range. There is a brief description of the crime committed included on the crime mapping program.
This approach in notification to the public is new to the Thunder Bay Police Service, but is used in many of the communities across Canada, along with several of Thunder Bay’s sister cities.
