Crime Report Data Map - Useful resource

Here's a  new crime mapping resource that came across my @tutormentorteam feed on Twitter today.
Use with other interactive maps to build a case for support of youth and families in different neighborhoods where map indicators show a high need for extra help.

Note that you can create a map-view focused on your own city, or zip code, then share this with a tweet. When you do that your map image will be shared inviting others from your area to use the information.
