I just discovered krimelabb, Austin’s citywide crime data site. It pulls information directly from APD’s crime incidence reports. You can research by zip code and view results as a list or graph and also on a Google map. It is very simple and easy to use. I will definitely be using this more often when researching crime in different neighborhoods. It is great to see the city making this information easier to use.
The City of Austin is asking for the poeple’s input regarding downtown districts. Go take the survey and let them know how you think the districts should be setup and used. The survey is open until January 22nd.
