Hawai'i News Now - The Maui Police Department has unveiled an online crime map called "RAIDS Online" that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Maui residents about crimes in their area, and allows the Maui Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
Maui residents can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area and sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity.
RAIDS Online automatically syncs with the Maui Police Department's records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app.
"The Maui Police Department's participation in RAIDS Online highlights their commitment to proactive communication with the public they serve," said Sean Bair, founder of BAIR Analytics, who partnered with the MPD to develop this new technology. "We're excited to partner with the Maui Police Department to provide this free service for their public."
The RAIDS Online Mobile app is available free at the App Store. Maui map can be viewed online at www.raidsonline.com/?address=Maui,%20HI.
