Everyone wants to see what crime is happening in their neighborhood. There is now one active online mapping sites for Oakland crime which can be reached in two ways:
The CRIMEWATCH site, maintained for OPD at CrimeView Community Incident Map. This site can also be linked at Crimemapping.com, but if you link that way you'll have to specify that you're interested in Oakland. As of 2013, OPD is officially working with CrimeMapping as their official mapping source.
The Oakland Crimespotting site, maintained by a nonprofit using OPD data, has been deleted.
No online crime mapping site is up to the minute with reported crimes, but Crimemapping.com is the current best source.
In January 2013 the Greater Rockridge NCPC began publishing quarterly Google maps of beats 12Y and 13X, using OPD's weekly crime reports:
12Y 3rd Quarter 2013 (incomplete as of 10/23/13)
13X 3rd Quarter 2013 (incomplete as of 10/23/13)
We plan to create new maps for each quarter.
As of 2008, the individual monthly crime maps listed below are no longer being maintained, but they are still available for historical comparison if you are interested.
