Lakeland Crime Map May 21 to May 27

I don’t normally pay attention to stats, but CommunityWalk displays how many times your maps have been viewed. Last week’s map was viewed 1805 times. That’s at least 10 times more than I would have guessed. And, that number was reduced since the LPD was unable to post the map on their website. It wasn’t the LPD’s fault. It’s a city filter issue. We’re working on fixing that problem.

This is our 12th Lakeland Crime Map. I think I’m starting to get the hang of it; even with moving to a new map site last week.

You’ll notice the top right corner of the map has a pull-down entitled “Legend.” Pull that down to find check boxes for each category listed on the map. Now you can see only those categories that interest you. They’re all easy to toggle on and off.

In addition to the house icon for Residential Burglaries, we now have auto icons for Stolen Vehicles, Recovered Stolen Vehicles and Residential Robberies. Note: Vehicle Burglaries are pink icons for now. That category covers almost half the items on the map. Anything too bold overwhelms the map.

This week we’re covering Lakeland Significant Calls for Service for May 21 – May 27, 2007.

Notes: You can click on a map pin to see the address and type of report. Click and hold to grab the map and move it around. When you click on a pin the address and call time is listed in the pop-up windows. You can also find a full page version of this map.

This week there were 59 events this week. They’re listed in the following areas: Business Burglary, Business Robbery, Personal Robbery, Stolen Vehicle, and Recovered Stolen Vehicle, Residential Burglary, Residential Robbery, and Vehicle Burglary.

Disclaimer from the LPD site:

Please note this is basic information that has not been subjected to further investigation or crime analysis. Some calls may eventually be cleared as unfounded from what was originally reported or may have been cleared by the arrest of an offender.

The Lakeland Police Department is using this map on their blog, Inside. The Lakeland Ledger also features this map as part of their weekly crime maps.

Tampa has a similar map.

Note: The information is supplied by the LPD. (Thanks to CCA Wallace)

I use OpenOffice and CommunityWalk to make the map.

    Dear Sir or Mrs,

    May 12; 2007; 10.00 PM; When I came back from an awesome church meeting (I was the preacher) on Bartow Rd in Lakeland; FL

    I became involved in a car crash! When I was driving on the 2 line (left) highway already in Lakeland, while the traffic lights were green for me with a speed around 40-45 Miles/Hour somebody with a Toyota Cambry (Silver-gold)(Serial number of Rear-Bumper that was left: 52615-AA031 on scene.) made a left turn in opposite position just a few feet in front of me. A collision could not be avoided! I hit the car in his right back and try to control the vehicle; my car went over the middle cement bump and stopped on the middle right side of the road. Traffic was partly blocked. The driver of the other car escaped direct after the collision! (Hit & run) Only the bumper of the back was left. My car has about $7.200 damage! I was still in shock. Police cars were after a minute at the scene while I was still calling 911!
    Later on a witness showed up. Police confirmed that this is absolutely NOT my fault. It was very clear for them what happened. A witness testifies about this and saw the other car running away!

    Car of Person that hit me: Toyota Cambry 1997-200o; Silver-gold color.
    Crime-Run-Away-Car most has serious damage: No bumper; No rear light right side and clearly to be seen right side in the back with blue paint from my car.
    Is there a possibility to get information through the DIM?

    I have posted detailed information on:
    http://www.goodnewsmedia.com/godsoutreach/HitAndRun05122007.htm
    Hit & Run 05/12/2007

    Location of crash: AZ Park Rd/ Commercial lane. – X – Bartow road at Lakeland
    {there was an ALL-State sticker on the bumper}
    • Finding the other driver and the car that cause the accident! He did a crime! He runs away from the scene; leaving me with all trouble; pain, confusion, and costs!
    • I am injured which effected the days after the accident, I cannot deny the stress situation and the aftermath-shock, I still have headache! I am in treatment with Lakeland Chiropractic; some neck-bones are twisted! This was our only car we still need to go the working place.

    Officer who has made the rapport: Officer D. Mosser (case: 07-38034); Lakeland Police Department
    Witness on scene: Mrs. Gwen Brown (863) xxx-xxxx
