Check out the new online Crime Mapping section at our website www.lacoso.org.

I wanted to make an announcement on this, even though some of you have discovered it already. We now participate in the MapNimbus online crime mapping program. You can use the service by clicking the “Crime Mapping” link on our website at www.lacoso.org or you can go directly to it at www.mapnimbus.com/DataNimbusClient.html?Client=Lancaster Co., SC. The map is easy to use and the incidents are pulled from our server daily. You can use the calendar icons to determine what length of time you wish to see incidents for. You can also zoom in/out and see a satellite image of the area. The functions are very similar to that used in Google Earth and other such mapping programs.

Using the icons on the left side of the screen you can see a statistical analysis using charts and graphs or set a specific area in which you wish to view incidents. You can also enter your e-mail address to be notified whenever there is an incident reported with a certain distance of your location. You can also use the same map to access the State Law Enforcement Division’s sex offender registry.

Keep in mind that the map represents all incident reports taken and not all of them are criminal in nature. This is just another part of our efforts to be as transparent as possible in our operations and keep the community supplied with information regarding activity in Lancaster County.

Have fun exploring the map and stay safe.
