CPD unveils new way of tracking crime

Site gives citizens ability to view common criminal acts in their neighborhood

CHICKASHA —

The Chickasha Police Department is attacking crime in the digital era. 

Today, CPD will launch a crime map entitled RAIDS in conjunction with BAIR Analytics. 

The map, which can be found at raidsonline.com, analyzes crime data, alerts citizens about past crimes in their area and gives CPD the ability to warn and alert Chickasha residents about crimes in progress.  

“We wanted to provide a simple way for the public to know what goes on in the city when it comes to criminal activity,” commented Chief of Police Eddie Adamson. “We have been working to make this happen for several months and are really thankful for the staff at BAIR who worked with us to make it happen.”

Other communities such as Ada and Norman have already implemented this system. 

Chickasha citizens will be able to view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically emails a breakdown of recent crime activity, or submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to their law enforcement agency. 

RAIDS syncs with the CPD’s records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app.  RAIDS Online displays all of the incidents on a map, grid and analytics dashboard along with some basic information about the incidents, including the type of crime, location type, block-level address, date and time. 

CPD will upload incident data multiple times during the day to keep things as timely as possible and readily available to the public. “Some of the features that we think the public will really like are the simplicity of the system and the ability to look at events in a neighborhood historically. You can see how many burglaries have happened over a period of time or how many drug arrests or any other incidents that have happened in an area. The public is interested in those facts and we can now give that information to them very easily but also on our end of the system we can use predictive analysis to give us an idea of where crimes are likely to occur based on the data in the system,” Chief Adamson added. “Right now the map shows crimes and some traffic incidents such as DUIs and a few others but eventually we will have the information on all the traffic citations in the system as well for the public to see. All of this information is public record and what we are doing is helping give the public access to the information as easily as possible.”
