After I published last week’s police report, I offered to continue making the maps. The Lakeland Police Department was kind enough to save me time and trouble by giving me the information in a spreadsheet file instead of PDF. Talk about local officials listening to the citizens! Thanks to Asst Chief Bill LePere for making everything happen so quickly and easily, and to his staff for putting together the spreadsheet.
So, this is the Lakeland Significant Calls for Service for March 12-18, 2007 plotted to a Google Map.
I’ve tried to make the map a little more friendly. There are six types of calls on the map: Business Burglary, Personal Robbery, Recovered Stolen Vehicle, Residential Burglary, Stolen Vehicle, and Vehicle Burglary. Residential Burglaries are represented by the little houses while the rest are each a different color pin.
You can still click on a map pin to see the address and type of report. Click and hold to grab the map and move it around.
If the map is missing, Atlas is having a hiccup. Try again in a few minutes.
