Community Crime Map
The Inver Grove Heights Police Department has teamed up with Lexis Nexis to provide Regional Data Sharing. The Community Crime Map is an interactive web based crime mapping program that allows citizens to stay informed about crime in Inver Grove Heights. The default setting is for 2 weeks from today’s date, if you wish to see back in time you can adjust the date range. The information that is supplied is considered public data and therefore is limited in nature to include the crime type, location, call time, and case number. If you wish to receive any type of e-mail alert you will need to log in. There are also free apps available for both Apple and Android devices. Now anyone wanting to know what the police car was doing on their street might be able to find out, provided a police report was generated and was an allowed crime type.
