How I Track Criminals

SpotCrimeI'm a big Law & Order buff. Not just the TV show. Actual crime astonishes me. Back when we still had a city paper, I used to read the crime log religiously.

Now that we don't, I watch what the local criminal masterminds are up to with SpotCrime, the Google-maps-linked tracker of local crime reports. Shootings, robberies, arrests, break-ins, assaults, vandalism -- they're all tracked right here. Almost as much fun as a police-band scanner.

Unfortunately, it doesn't yet track my own neighborhood. But all the big cities are tracked, including the two just north and south of my town.

Know of any other good map-linked resources? Tell me about 'em by clicking that Comments link, below.
