YPG Hosts SpotCrime Tutorial

Feb. 18
5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
USGIF Headquarters, Herndon, VA

This event will take the place of YPG Third Thursday in Northern Virginia.

Join YPG Feb. 18 as they learn about SpotCrime, a crime mapping website with the largest crime alerting system in the U.S., working to deliver relevant crime information to the public. A representative from SpotCrime will speak to YPG about what SpotCrime is and how to submit a crime tip. Food and drink will be provided for attendees.

SpotCrime delivers around 15 million email alerts monthly to subscribers, while collecting and digesting crime data from hundreds of agencies all over the U.S., UK, Canada, and Australia and plots it on Google maps. The open crime data standard (SOCS) created by SpotCrime, in an effort to standardize public crime information, has been adopted by agencies nationwide, including agencies like Montgomery County, Md. and NORCOM in the Seattle area. SpotCrime advocates for open, equal, and fair access to crime data and does not charge police agencies or residents for services
