Reduce crime and improve public safety.LexisNexis’s public crime map, Community Crime Map, connects law enforcement with the community to reduce crime and improve public safety. Crime mapping helps the public get a better idea of the crime activity in their area so they can make more informed decisions about how to stay safe.
Community Crime Map goes beyond crime mapping by automatically alerting the public about recent crime activity and by improving communication between the public and law enforcement through anonymous tips. Community Crime Map empowers the public to make better decisions about crime by putting the same technology used by law enforcement to analyze and interpret crime activity into the hands of the public.
Law enforcement agencies keep detailed records about each incident that occurs in their jurisdiction. When an incident happens, the officer that responded to the incident writes a detailed report with information about the event including the location, people involved, related vehicles and other useful information. This information is stored in large secure databases within each law enforcement agency, which can make it difficult for two neighboring cities to share crime data and benefit from being able to analyze events and offenders that cross city boundaries. LexisNexis helps centralize and standardize this information to improve regional data sharing analysis.

No! Some sensitive crimes or cases under investigation are not included in the data. We work hard to provide information to the public but cannot immediately provide information in all instances. Additionally, responses to calls that do not generate a written incident or arrest report are not included in the data.
General information can be obtained on the map, but a Public Records Request is needed to get additional information.
Data is collected, modified to protect victim privacy, and displayed so the public can be aware of events that occur within the City of Everett.
