Scottsdale Neighborhood Crime Maps
The city of Scottsdale provides a Community Crime Map by LexisNexis that allows one to enter the city or a specific address. As I browsed the map, I saw so many different types of crime, which was a bit confusing.
Fortunately, I have never had reason to understand the differences between theft, burglary, and robbery, but it got me wondering. According to Wikipedia the definitions are as follows:
- Theft is taking something that doesn’t belong to you.
- Burglary is an unlawful entry into a building with the purpose of committing an offence.
- Robbery is taking or attempting to take property from a person by force or threat of force.
Another Crime Map Option
Another good neighborhood crime map is Spotcrime.com. Their website says they aggregate data from police departments and verified news reports and map crime incidents on Google Maps. The service is free, but one is required to sign up for an account.
These two crime maps can be used for Scottsdale as well as any other Phoenix Metro City or neighborhood.
