KPD launches crime map

LIHUE — The Kauai Police Department recently launched a new, online, crime-mapping program called LexisNexis Community Crime Map, which replaces the former program, RAIDS Online.

“We are pleased to continue transparent communication between law enforcement and the public by providing a way for the community to track crime around the island,” said Darryl Perry, chief of police. “This map helps the public to better understand crime trends that occur in their area and make informed decisions to stay safe.”

LexisNexis is a free platform that allows citizens to view a map of crimes which can be filtered by type of crime, date and location of the incident. Users can also receive automatic crime activity alerts via email, and submit anonymous tips on reported crimes. Data in LexisNexis syncs directly with KPD’s records system and is updated automatically.
