PITTSFIELD, Mass.—The Pittsfield Police Department and BAIR Analytics Inc. recently partnered to provide a crime map to the public.
The crime map called RAIDS, is an online system that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Pittsfield citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the Pittsfield Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
"RAIDS Online is a natural extension of our ongoing Neighborhood Watch initiatives. By utilizing this tool, the Department can provide up to date information to our Neighborhood Watch partners on a constant basis. In turn, they can provide information to us about activity in their neighborhoods," said Police Chief Michael Wynn.
