Mesquite, TX – June 13, 2016 – Today, the Mesquite Police Department announced the launch of their new online crime mapping website which provides the public with information about crimes reported within the City of Mesquite. For details, visit www.cityofmesquite.com/CrimeMap.
Mesquite Police Chief Charles Cato said, “I encourage the public to visit our new crime mapping webpage. This is a great opportunity for them to be informed, be engaged, and help us keep Mesquite safe.”
Mesquite City Manager Cliff Keheley stated, “I am very pleased with this effort by our police department. This new web tool is another step towards becoming a more transparent organization and it helps support the City Council’s policy issue of Public Safety.”
The new website will allow the public to explore various crime information. The public can register for email alerts and be notified when a crime is reported near an address they are interested in.
There will be information available on offense reports filed with the Mesquite Police Department on arson, assault, burglary, drugs/alcohol abuse, fraud, homicide, motor vehicle theft, robbery, theft/larceny, vandalism, vehicle break-in and weapons. Offenses are reported to the general area (street and block number) rather than to the exact address of the offense report. The crime data will be updated daily.
Some information will not be available, including offenses handled by the responding police officer that result in a citation or arrest. These would include disturbing the peace or driving under the influence. Also, sex offenses will not be reporter in order to protect the privacy of the victims.
