Killeen Police relaunch community crime map

KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

Killeen relaunched a website for people to stay up-to-date on crime.

The site was formerly known as Raids and it's now called community crime map.

On the website, each type of crime is color-coded and areas with crime seem to be spread throughout the city.

People in the community are excited about the relaunch of the website so they can continue to stay informed.

"You always want to know where those things are happening at and you know maybe where to steer clear from," said Robert Johnson.

Killeen Police Commander Alex Gearhart said the website has details dating back to 2010, that people wouldn't otherwise know.

"It allows the general public to see for themselves whats going on in the community," said Gearhart.

Gearhart said people can look at specific neighborhood information or they can look at the city as a whole to just be better informed.

The community crime map website list crimes like theft, assault, robbery, and burglary to name a few. Residents are eager to stay up to date.

"It's good to know where those things are happening at", said Johnson.

Ashley King is another Killeen resident who is excited about using this new feature.

"The crime has been, going up for the past couple of years and it's a big concern for me because I do have small children in the area, so its always a big concern of mine," said King.

King also said she looks forward to adding the community crime website to her security plan.
