How Bad is Crime in Your Area?

- Recently we've had a rash of car break-ins all over Atlanta. But have you ever wondered how close you live to all the action? 

According to this 'crime mapping tool' available from the Atlanta Police Department, you can figure out how often and what type of crime is happening in your area. 

In the above maps we discovered dozens of 'car larcenies' in both Buckhead and Midtown from August 31 to September 14, 2015. But if you look at the overall year to date, There are nearly 3,000 total for the two zones. And that doesn't include the number of car thefts! 

When using the crime tracking data you can put in your own address or simply look up the information by zone. You can also include aggravated assaults, homicide, larceny, home burglary, non-residential burglary and robbery.
