Integrating US Crime Data For Your Safety
As your family member's location changes so does the level of threats. In the city, a few blocks can mean the difference between safe passage and real trouble. The best way to avoid danger is to know where is occurs. Using our Threat Level Formula, we give our subscriber a clear assessment of the danger in their current location so they can avoid it or take pre-active actions. Our exclusive crime data are developed for each neighborhood using our mathematical algorithms and municipal crime statistics from the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department.
We use a proprietary data and analysis engine tool to compute the safety of every area in the US or for where crime data is available. This information reveals the safety from crime for every neighborhood in America, and shows you how each neighborhood compares to other neighborhoods nationwide, so you can make good decisions for your family or your company's location needs.
The crime rates we have developed are based on data and crime statistics from the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department. We gather data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in the United States, and use a relational database to associate crime incidences from all of these law enforcement agencies to the specific local communities the agency covers, and hence in which community the crimes have occurred. We then researched and developed mathematical algorithms to statistically estimate the incidences of both violent and property crimes for each neighborhood in America. The resultant formulae produce numbers of crimes and crime rates for neighborhoods with upwards of 90% accuracy in most cases. We use a set of different formulas to increase the accuracy of our estimates, and apply them based on city or town characteristics, to produce the best model fit in each case.
About the Crime Data
The data used from these 17,000 local law enforcement agencies are the FBI defined "crime index" crimes. Index crimes are the eight crimes the FBI combines to produce its annual crime index. The index seeks to overcome differences in individual state statues - that would ignore how the individual is charged - and create a standardized definition of crime classification. This was done through defining serious and non-serious offenses. Part I crimes are comprised of serious felonies and Part II crimes are comprised of non-serious felonies and misdemeanors. Together these two types of classifications make up the crimes reported in the Uniform Crime Reports.
These offenses include willful homicide, forcible rape, robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, larceny over $50, motor vehicle theft, and arson. In order to compare statistical information on a national basis the FBI came up with a common definition for crime comparison.
Support for Non-US Crime Data
We are working of providing crime data for other countries. But genuine problems exists as such data is hard to come by outside the western world. We will put the information in our News as we add support for more countries in the future. Some countries have no such reliable information so in that case, we may use our own data that will be compiled by our own research team to mark an area safe or unsafe.
