Sheriff Danny Hickman is proud to announce that a new tool for the public and the Sheriff’s Office is now available on the Boone County Sheriff’s Office website: www.BooneSheriff.com. This tool is an interactive crime map which allows site visitors to view locations where crimes occurred within Boone County.
This crime map display is provided as a public resource for general information and is not a complete history of crimes committed or reported in Boone County.
“The crime map is a new and innovative tool for the Boone County Sheriff’s Office to use to provide information to the public. With this new crime map, website visitors can go online and view locations where crimes have occurred in the County. Our goal is to increase public awareness to enhance public safety,” states Boone County Sheriff Danny Hickman.
The website pinpoints locations on the map where crimes have occurred. Fifteen specific types of crime may be identified with icon pinpoints: Arson; Assault; Burglary; Disturbing the Peace; Drug; Fraud; Homicide; Multiple Crimes; Robbery; Sex Crime; Theft; Vandalism; Vehicle Break-in; Vehicle Theft; and Weapon crimes. Site visitors can choose to display crime locations based on the type of crime and/or by year. A link to the new crime map is located on the Sheriff’s Office website home page in the upper right hand corner.
As new incidents are reported, information will be added to the crime map by the Boone County Sheriff’s Office staff. The staff is currently inputting crime data from 2010 and 2011. Identifying Meth lab locations is a major piece of information the Sheriff’s Office wants to provide to the public.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office is one of the first Sheriff’s Offices in Arkansas to implement this crime-mapping technology. Brooks-Jeffrey Marketing, Inc. (MostWantedWebsites.com) of Mountain Home, Arkansas, developed the Boone County Sheriff’s Office website and crime-mapping feature. The crime map is the latest addition to the website that currently features a sex offender location map, inmate roster, most wanted listings, and email alert notifications for the public.
