WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Local crime tracking just got a lot easier in Wichita Falls.

The Wichita Falls Police Department shared information concerning a local internet resource tool. Not limited to the Wichita Falls area, crimemapping.com has the ability to set up text alerts from the website.

The free site displays maps, charts and a number of other modifiable functions including date ranges.

“You can go on at any given time and see activity. It’s not going to be live activity but it’s going to be recent activity ,we’ve responded to. Then once its in the database it stays there,” said Jeff Hughes, Crime Prevention Specialists Wichita Falls Police Department.

The sites said data is collected from participating law enforcement agencies and the information given will be most current.
