Who benefits from Crime Mapping other than Law Enforcement and the public? The answer can be broader than expected. Many industries including banking, insurance, security, legal and retail utilize crime maps in their profession. Businesses are increasingly applying crime mapping to understand and mitigate criminal risks to their property and employees. While police departments typically address all crimes that fall within their jurisdictional boundaries, businesses tend to be concerned with certain types of crime over a wider geographical area — particularly businesses that have multiple sites in more than one police jurisdiction.
GeoGRAFX focuses specifically on industries that utilize crime analysis and mapping in their work, but don’t have the time or expertise to create the projects in-house.
Industries that can benefit from GeoGRAFX Crime Maps include:
Attorneys that specialize in Crime victims as well as attorneys focusing on commercial real estate law benefit from our visual and criminal reports in order to aid their cases. Normally, criminals follow a spatial pattern, making GIS a perfect tool to find the relationships between criminal occurrences and the case at hand.
Currently, several security companies have partnered with web mapping companies to offer their free crime map reporting. We take that one step further and include data collected from security companies in the reports we generate. This provides additional information to your customer base on incidents that have not been reported to the police department.
Do you need Crime Analysis capabilities that are a step above the free web services?
GeoGRAFX provides analysis customized to meet our client's needs, whether it is weekly crime reporting for a shopping center, analysis and presentation materials for a court case, or providing support for security firms that need outside reporting that show that their services are effective.
